LOVELAND, Colo. - May 13, 2014 - PRLog -- About TEDxFrontRange

TEDxFrontRange is supported by FrontRange Initiatives (a Colorado nonprofit corporation) Our plan is to put the world spotlight on the creative potential of Loveland and the Front Range of Colorado. We seek to do so by engaging our audience with an intriguing collection of presenters, performers and TED Talks as we explore the promises, the challenges and the potential of the dynamic TEDxFrontRange returns to Loveland for the third year, featuring 18 local and national speakers and performance artists. The theme of this year’s event is “DIY – Doers, Influencers and You,” and talks will focus on those who are working to impact the world by doing, showing telling and inspiring. TEDxFrontRange 2014 will take place Thursday, May 22 from 1:00 to 5:30 p.m. at the historic Rialto Theatre Center, 228 E. Fourth Street, Loveland Colorado. Tickets (general and VIP) are now available at www.TEDxFrontRange.com.

Notable speakers at this year’s event include Michael Holthouse of Houston, Texas. Holthouse’s Prepared 4 Life, which helps prepare kids for life through fun experiential programs focused on life skills, character development and entrepreneurship training. P4L created National Lemonade Day in 2007, which teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business using a lemonade stand. This year’s National Lemonade Day is May 4, 2014. Last year’s program served 200,000 youth in 35 cities across North America, up from 2,700 in 2007.

Other speakers appearing include Kai Staats, formerly a northern Colorado technology entrepreneur, who recently premiered his film, “LIGO – A passion for understanding.” He’s currently studying at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cosmology Research Group in Cape Town, South Africa. Also on the bill is 13-yr-old environmental activist Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a co-founder of youth-led Earth Guardians, which is represented on five continents. Aaron Makuruk is the co-founder of Open Tech Collaborative, which creates innovative tools and technology, and makes it available worldwide for free. OTC’s latest project is Open Source Beehives, which is working to remedy threats to bee populations worldwide.

“DIY – Doers, Influencers and You” is all about how It’s a DIY world. The TEDxFrontRange stage, will assemble presenters and performers who Do by Doing, Showing, Inspiring and Telling. An eclectic gathering of leaders, innovators, authors, artists, performers, and film makers will give brief presentations from five to eighteen minutes long that will inspire, amuse, and uplift the audience.

It’s a DIY world.

Knowledge is free, and freely available. No longer is the adage, “Those who can’t DO, TEACH!” considered to be conventional wisdom.  We not only need doers; we need those influencers who can inspire us to do more and do better!  Most important, though, what does this mean to YOU?

While it is a DIY world, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to DIABY (do it ALL by yourself).

From the TEDxFrontRange stage, we’ll assemble presenters and performers who can:

Do by Doing

         Do by Showing

         Do by Telling

         Do by Inspiring

Grow, learn and experience what DIY means for You. It’s a whole new world!

A post-event VIP reception offers VIP ticketholders the opportunity to mingle or dine with the speakers and discuss their work and presentation topics.

A combination of creative potential. We have started the conversation and plan to keep it growing for years to come.
