TEDxNewarkAcademy 2016

In April 2016, Newark Academy hosted its second TEDx event. I initiated the process of bringing TEDx to Newark Academy in 2013, and I enjoyed working with a remarkable group of students and faculty to put on the second iteration. TEDxNewarkAcademy 2016 featured speakers from across the Newark Academy community who focused their presentations on the event’s theme, Between the Lines. I'm pleased to post the videos of the six talks. Watch, enjoy, and share!

Tess Callahan, Faculty: "The Love Affair Between Creativity and Constraint"
