Maine: a creative studio for innovation

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to spark  discussion and connection in a small group. The annual TEDxDirigo event presents ideas from Maine’s brightest innovators and change-makers.

“We’re such a small population, its incredible how many innovators there are in Maine.” — Zoe Weil


About Sparks

“Innovation comes from the inside, out—not the outside, in.”

Positive youth development pioneer, Peter Benson, believed real innovation and education reform begin with all adults paving a path of purpose, hope, joy, and connectedness for the 60 million American youth who have fallen to a road of medication, confusion, loneliness, and emptiness.
