How is the culture that shapes a community created? How does each individual contribute to these cultures? This TEDxRainier salon will showcase several TED talks around this theme, followed by an open conversation about the ideas presented. Past TEDxRainier speaker Pramila Jayapal will be sharing an update and participating in the group conversation. Leading this interactive, salon-style event will be Phil Klein, lead curator for TEDxRainier; Elizabeth Coppinger, co-curator of TEDxRainier; and others.
