UNM Continuing Education Instructor Nancy Judd, Delivers Inspiring TED Talk

TED is a nonprofit organization whose mission is “ideas worth spreading.” TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, started 25 years ago. It has grown to support those “world-changing ideas” through two annual conferences where the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to present. Recently, one of UNM Continuing Education’s Youth instructors, Nancy Judd gave an inspiring TEDx event presentation in Albuquerque, NM. Although Nancy has given hundreds of talks during her career, this was her largest audience and most professional event she has participated in to date. In her talk, Nancy discussed why she creates couture fashion sculptures from trash, the message she hoped to impart and the chance to issue a TED-type challenge.

In her summer camp, she teaches campers environmentally sustainable techniques for creating their very own couture pieces.
