The Berrie Center’s Co-Director, Robin Goland, J Merrill Eastman, Professor of Clinical Diabetes, will give a TEDx talk at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) on September 26. This year's theme is "The In-Between", a daylong celebration of what isn't. Yet. The main stage of this year's TEDxMet is at The Met Breuer. The building itself serves as the inspiration for the day: no longer the Whitney, not yet the Met, a building in-between. Dr. Goland, who was invited to speak on type 1 diabetes, will take the stage with 14 other noted artists and experts, including two Pulitzer Prize winners.

TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a successful global annual conference and lecture series that produces the popular online TED Talks, described as “ideas worth spreading.”  TEDx talks are independently organized TED events that take place around the world. TEDxMet presents talks on a broad range of scientific, cultural and academic topics.

Among the presenters at this year’s TEDxMet in addition to Dr. Goland are a 14-year-old musical prodigy; a New York City Ballet Principal Dancer; a composer and a poet, both recent Pulitzer Prize winners; the author of a seminal article on growing up bi-racial; visual artists and designers who examine the creative process and two curators from the museum who specialize the art of ancient world and the art of today.

The full TEDxMet program will be streamed live on September 26 at www.metmuseum.org/tedxmet.
