We are the curious minds gather to build a dogma free edutainment (education and entertainment) community. Inspired by Ted talks, our meetings feature short videos viewing (15 - 20 mins) followed by fun and thoughtful discussions. The videos are usually from Ted talks, documentary clips, and even those viral Facebook videos with a provoking message to share. Members take turn to host the meetings and share the videos along with their commentary. 

Our mission: to bring lofty ideas from everyone to everyone, to help each other discover our blind spots. Fostered in a dogma free and evidence based culture, this community wants to empower its members with ideas to change attitudes and lives, here in Upstate NY and ultimately, the world. This community is supported by the Center for Empowering Communities in Schenectady, NY. (https://www.facebook.com/CenterforEmpoweringCommunities).

Our values include dogma free thinking, diversity (in all forms including expression, ethnic, sexual orientation, heritage, identity expression), community serving, environmental awareness, and mindful consumption.

By joining us, you'd also be participating to sculpt out a TEDx for Upstate NY region which is part of this group's ambition. So come join us and be ambitious.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
