A call for speakers: Rossland’s 2nd annual RED Talks event

Rossland’s Seven Summits Centre for Learning is hosting the 2nd Annual RED Talks event,

Rossland’s Seven Summits Centre for Learning is hosting the 2nd Annual RED Talks event, taking place on Friday, May 1, at the Rossland Miners’ Hall. The event is similar to the well known TED Talks, and as with TED we need speakers that have ideas worth spreading!

“All or Nothing” is this year’s theme, with the goal of speakers and performers sharing their ideas in talks that are between three and 15 minutes in length.  We are looking for speakers of all ages, with a range of experiences, life stories, research, ideas, skills, talents and backgrounds, to fill the stage for an evening of inspiring talks.

The event is a fundraiser for Seven Summits and will be the kick off to the Rossland Youth Action Network’s Youth Week events from May 1 to 7.

If you are interested in a contributing to our event, or if you have any questions, please contact Seven Summits Center for learning at 250-362-7772 or 250-362-7474 or by email at jonnycoleshill@selfdesign.org.
