The theme of this 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, the 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 "On the Edge" of survival, collected from community and regional organizations who assist low-income populations. These stories will be paired with artwork from local artists inspired by the stories.

TEDxPiscataquaRiver is a community-organized event where big ideas and challenges that affect our community are openly discussed.

Our mission is to spark conversation and ignite positive community action by bringing together community representatives and showcasing new ideas from local, regional and national voices across diverse disciplines and backgrounds. Our goals are to provoke conversation among community leaders and members about the issues our community is facing, and enable those conversations to spread as far as possible; to expose attendees to new perspectives and innovative ideas and inspire them to think differently about the many topics discussed; to create a compelling call to action for each person attending and watching the event to make a real commitment to enact positive change in their community.
