IT’S A WRAP! What a tremendous day!
The 2011 TEDxFlushingMeadows is over. We ran at frenetic pace, packed quite a lot in and was awed by the quality of TEDxTalks, Spoken Word, Videos, Comedy, Dancers, Drummers and the guided museum tour!
We must give Special Mention and thank you to:
Zac Shavrick who went above and beyond! Zac helped to review and curate the videos presented, he helped with set-up, registration, releases and so much more.
Maria Torres did an exceptional job curating four performances including 13 Dancers and 2 Drummers.
Prerana Reddy, who didn't just say yes when we asked to use QMA, but was involved throughout the entire process and ensured that every need was met ans surpassed.
