@ Marbles Kids Museum

Participants will have 20 slides (with just 20 seconds per slide!) to present their best ideas for what the Triangle needs to do next.
Building off a keynote presentation from Henry Copeland, each member of the selected group will have less than seven minutes to present their vision for improving the local community. Following is the list of presentations for IdeaSPARK/Pecha Kucha. An abstract and image of each can be found on the SPARKcon site.

Henry Copeland, “Outside is the New Inside”
Aly Khalifa, “Introduction to SPARKcon 2009”
Wayne Sutton, “19 Reasons Why the Triangle is Better than Silicon Valley”
Atrayus Goode, “From Average to Excellent”
Becky Shankle, “Why 9 to 5 is Inhumane”
Pete Farquhar, “Self-Help Helps Your Money Help Others”
Robin Koch, “Oak City Time Trade”
Beth Yerxa, “Triangle Art/Works: Making Arts Work in the Triangle”
Alan Happ, “Talk About Healthy Humor and Laughter”
