(Culture) – Perhaps inspired by the style at TED Talks, the Mexican Consulate in San Francisco has come up with an interest event, where notable Mexicans present their talks in English, to a diverse audience.
The De Young Museum is the site for this particular event, one of several in the “MEX I AM” festival, aiming to present Mexicans in a better light, and to show the world that Mexicans in the United States and everywhere else can’t be stereotyped, specially when the stereotyping has negative connotations.
Each speaker of ¡IDEAS! will deliver a talk on a topic of their expertise. The presentations are short, to the point, and easy to understand. No technical knowledge on any field is required.
This program features music performances by the Bernal Hill Players and a variety of innovative talks by Leticia Landa, Linda Franco, and Fabiola Kramsky .
