TEDxBroadway 2015: Be Open, Inclusive and True

TEDxBroadway 2015 took place this past Monday — and it was a big success. The biggest takeaways, according to Mark Kennedy at Associated Press, were “be open, inclusive but, above all, be true.”

In his article, “TEDxBroadway urges theater professionals to be bold,” Kennedy shares the messages that rang out loud and clear from presenters like Benjamin Scheuer, who wrote and stars in his autobiographical solo show The Lion (“Tell the truth in art about bad things. You’ll be doing something good.), and Leslie Koch, who has helped turn once-empty Governors Island into a popular 150-acre space for festivals and art (“be truly open, improvise, be radically welcoming.”)

If you didn’t have the opportunity to attend TEDxBroadway this year, in the next few weeks we’ll be sharing interviews with the speakers as well as videos of their entire presentations — which will get you pumped for next year’s event.

And here’s the twitter highlights and must-sees from Monday.
