Poggio Speaks at TEDx in Hartford — See Video
Natacha Poggio, assistant professor of visual communication design, Hartford Art School, gave a talk at the first TEDx organized in Hartford—TEDxBushnellPark—on June 22, 2013.
TEDxBushnellPark celebrated the work being done in Greater Hartford to improve communities and civic spaces in both large and small ways.
Poggio's presentation, “Helping Communities Thrive,” described the collaborative and multidisciplinary nature of the projects she has developed along with her Design Global Change students, such as a nonviolence mural on Albany Avenue in Hartford. Poggio also discussed the "Water for India" graphic educational campaign that she and her students developed as part of the University's work in the village of Abheypur, India, led by the Engineers Without Borders student chapter in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA).

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience in their own communities. TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED). Since then its scope has become ever broader, with multiple initiatives that bring people together to engage with ideas and with each other.
TEDxBushnell Park was coordinated by University of Hartford alum Steve Yanicke '06.
