Kindness. The Super Power Inside All of Us.

TEDxOMAHA Salon will explore a key component of community, connection and humanity. Kindness. A relation to compassion, grace, and empathy, kindness can be an act, a thought, a word, a deed, it can be intentional and unintentional, and shift the world into a far better place. Join us at Kaneko, with Dr. Ferial Pearson, who created the Secret Kindness Agents Project while working at Ralston High School, showing how ‘small acts of kindness really can change the world’, and make us all the better for it.

KANEKO is located at 1111 Jones Street in Downtown Omaha.

PARKING: There are a few metered spots alongside the building on Jones. It is recommended that you park at the garage on 10th & Jackson Street.

About TEDxOmaha
TEDxOmaha is an independently organized TEDx event. As a part of the global TED community, we connect locally to explore the ideas and situations that affect our cultures, environments, and minds. Most people are introduced to this remarkable collection of human experiences through recorded TED Talks. Through technology, we can hear stories of discovery, heartache, joy, introspection, and imagination from some of the world’s most amazing people. By creating events in Omaha, we produce an experience based on TED’s principles.

Who attends TEDxOmaha? Five hundred of our community’s most curious, forward-thinking people. Activists, artists, philanthropists, modern-day philosophers, policymakers, stay-at-home parents, and more. You, too, can gather with amazing people from our region who share their insights and accomplishments. It helps us witness what is happening – and what is possible – so we can be inspired to take bigger steps together. TEDxOmaha is held annually in October and offers monthly TEDxOmahaSalon events at KANEKO.
