The next TEDxSacramento Salon will be held on Saturday, September 17 at The Barn located in the West Sacramento Bridge District. Mark your calendar!
Come Meet the Changemakers will shine a light on those in our city who have the ideas, passion, and the will to affect change in their own way. These Changemakers not only ask what can be, but what should be.
The event will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. 100% of ticket sales go toward the cost of the event. Tip: Event prices will increase as the event gets closer.
The Barn, located at 985 Riverfront Street, opened in July. The Barn is an 8,000 square-foot shingled shade structure and public gathering place where numerous events are sure to be held in the future. The design of the structure is extraordinary!
The September 17th event is the last TEDxSacramento Salon of the season. (Salons are shorter format events between main TEDxSacramento events)

The last TEDxSacramento Salon was held on July 29 at the Crocker Art Museum. The Art, Technology, and The City Salon was my first event as a TEDxSacramento volunteer. As you can imagine, a lot goes on behind the scenes to organize and put on these events.
As a volunteer I leant a hand freshening up (painting) some TEDxSacramento props and I worked on the check-in desk the evening of the event.
If you were unable to attend this is what you missed – The Crocker Art Museum is a great venue, and the attendees had the opportunity to mingle and enjoy a beverage (or two) from the bar in advance of the program and during the intermission.
The sold-out crowd enjoyed a variety of videos, speakers and performers over the course of the evening.
The speakers were:
- Tre Bordon a Placemaking Consultant who is the curator of the Sacramento Warehouse Lofts and the Co-Producer and Project Manager for PORTOL and Bright Underbelly.
- Sammie Rayner who is the Co-Founder and COO of HandUp.org a fundraising platform for homelessness in the U.S.
- Jeremy Neuner who is the co-author of The Rise of the Naked Economy: How to Benefit From the Changing Workplace and who is a frequent speaker on the future of work and the workplace.
- Abhi Nemani who heads up the Chief Innovation Office for the City of Sacramento and is piloting a government technology startup EthosLabs.us (a public and private accelerator for cities).
- Rachel Clarke who teaches New Media and Digital Art at Sacramento State.
Performing for the crowd between speakers was:
- Kris Anaya, a mathematician, singer, songwriter and composer who performed three original songs and accompanied himself on the acoustic guitar.
- Koncept & Kae Jae (Goodfellas x Bellas) a Sacramento-based dance collaborative of freestylers and choreographers.
At the end of the evening as the attendees departed it was obvious from the smiles and chatter that a good time was had by all.
