The expansive concept of “the figure” reaches into almost every area of contemporary life. With more data than ever at their fingertips, scientists are using figures to make better decisions by the numbers. In the visual arts, the figure defines or puts into perspective the space around it. And of course the figure refers to the physical body and raises questions about how we understand ourselves as both individuals and integral parts of community.

Since the start of TEDxNapaValley in 2011 we’ve had a student speaker on stage each year, and we’re very proud of our commitment to the next generation. Each year our Educational Outreach Director, Barbara Sabbadini, works with teachers at many local High Schools and fits the demands of a TEDx talk into a class in their curriculum that works for the school. Each class works through their own internal process and send us 2 speakers to compete in what we call the TEDxNapaValley Student Speak-Off. The TEDxNapaValley team then has the hard task of choosing only one of these incredible students to present their idea on the “big stage” at the main TEDxNapaValley event each year. Wednesday, March 16, at the Napa High School Little Theater from 6pm
