Most know the nonprofit organization TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) as a source for engaging and intellectually stimulating talks covering a wide range of subjects, or as they bill it, “ideas worth spreading.” TEDxSanAntonio has selected 16 speakers to share such talks in 18 minutes or less on this year’s theme of “Now Is the Time.”

Speakers include Eric Cooper, President and CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank; Sonny Melendrez, radio personality and inspirational speaker; and Janet Trevino, professional platonic touch and cuddling specialist. Cooper will deliver a talk titled “Volunteer Prozac,” covering the mental health benefits of volunteering, while Melendrez’s talk, “Intentional Enthusiasm,” mirrors his book The Art of Living with Enthusiasm. The book aims to guide readers through ways to incorporate enthusiasm into their daily lives. Trevino’s talk will present the healing effects of physical touch and how to access it.



Other speakers’ talks will cover dance, healthcare, politics, gastronomy and more.

$45-$100, Saturday, November 18, 10am-5pm, Witte Museum, 3801 Broadway, (210) 357-1900, greatstuff.tedxsanantonio.com.
