The revitalization of Beacon and other Hudson Valley communities didn't happen over night—it's the result of the hard work and invaluable contributions of local residents. TEDxLongDock, a self-organized subset of TED—a nonprofit dedicated to sharing the ideas of the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers—features talks about the impact of arts, culture, creativity, and entrepreneurship in the Hudson Valley. Rejecting traditional economic development theories, TEDxLongDock will explore the role of the creative economy on the region's longterm success. Speakers include Susan Batton, Dia:Beacon's museum administrator; Joe Concra, cofounder of the O+ Festival; Jason Stern, Chronogram's founder and publisher; and Shawn Dell Joyce, founder of the Walkill River School of Art. TedxLongDock hosts its inaugural event at Beacon's Institute Center for Environmental Innovation and Education on June 7.
