TEDxFSCJ Announces Speakers for Art (Re)Defines Us

Jacksonville, FL – TEDxFSCJ is partnering with OneVoice and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Jacksonville to host a salon that addresses how the many modes of art—painting, poetry, spoken word and historic neighborhoods—contribute to the flourishing of communities. The TEDxFSCJ Salon, “Art (Re)Defines Us,” will take place Wednesday, September 14, 2016, from 6-8 p.m. at MOCA Jacksonville.

The theme for this TEDxFSCJ event is to strengthen ongoing conversation about arts, community and public ideals in Jacksonville. Art exercises a tremendous influence over our personal identity and public values. Learning to understand, appreciate and strengthen that influence enriches our lives as individuals. It also helps us take greater responsibility for the character of our communities and determine whether and to what extent our public artistic and cultural spaces embody the principles we profess.

The evening will feature music by The Lyricist LIVE creator Mal Jones, an open mic street party held during the downtown Art Walk, as well as TED Talks, audience discussion and four expert panelists who have made lasting contributions to Jacksonville’s artistic community.

The panelists include:
· Tiffany Melanson
· Ebony Payne-English
· Christina Parrish Stone
· Roosevelt Watson III

The “Art (Re)Defines Us” salon is free to attend. Check-in and live music are scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. For more information, or to register, please visit tedxfscj.com.
