TED is mind-blowing experience

TED, a nonprofit devoted to "ideas worth spreading," has become the one-name representation of blow-your-mind thinking.

Now TEDx community events, spread from TED.com, are challenging minds. The latest, featuring two local women, is TEDxMile High: "Women 2013 Values and Instincts." It's Nov. 16 at Newman Center for the Performing Arts, Gates Concert Hall, on the Denver University campus.

One mind-challenging speaker will be Sara Volz, who made local headlines as a Cheyenne Mountain High School senior winning the 2013 Intel Science Talent Search. Now she's a freshman at MIT studying molecular biology and continuing her research into producing "algae biofuels using artificial selection."

Also featured is Colorado College professor Katherine Giuffre, called a "changemaking professor doing research on the social structures most conducive to fostering creativity and innovative thinking."

Others scheduled:

- Songwriter/artist Esm?Patterson, who toured and performed on television with her band Paper Bird.

- Ashlynn Damers from the international youth slam poet group, Minor Disturbance, and "a fighter for justice, equality, and human rights through spoken word."

- Julia Hutchins, CEO of Colorado HealthOP, a "believer that health care can, and should, work better for more people through collaboration and consumer engagement."

Tickets: $39.50-69.50, http://tinyurl.com/m2q4jbg. Information: tedxmilehigh.com
