On the Edge

on the edge

The theme of our 2016 TEDxPiscataquaRiver event is "On the Edge."

As is typical of TEDx themes, "On the Edge" can be interpreted in many ways — geographically, Portsmouth is on the edge of two states, on the edge of the ocean and the Piscataqua River.

Thematically, our event's talks and performances will include ideas on the cutting edge of technology, stories of people on the edge of breakthrough, societies on the edge of cultural shifts — and will bring the audience to the edge of their limits.

The event will also highlighting stories of people in our own community who are on the edge — of survival, of community, of power — and are collected from community and regional organizations who assist low-income populations, people overcoming addictions, survivors of sexual assault and people living and working with disabilities. These stories will be paired with artwork from local artists inspired by the stories.
