A great part of a TED conference is the change of pace delivered by short punchy 3 to 5 minute talks. We will be including several of these in our TEDxIBYork program, and we're delighted that two slam poets will be joining us in this category, Lishai, and David Silverberg.
Poetry is no longer relegated to the dusty tomes we might have read in high school. It's out there communicating with the people in a mix of poetry and performance art. Lishai and Silverberg are both accomplished practitioners of the art. One of our committee who attended a performance recently, assures me we have a great treat in store!
