A Legacy of Learning with Dignity | Bill Strickland | TEDxPittsburgh

vor 2 Jahren

Creating an accessible space for world-class education, when paired with world-class art, food, and performance can heal a lot of wounds and brighten a lot of futures. The lifelong work of Bill Strickland is proving this model for an education center that has been replicated in cities across the globe, with more on the way. Learn about his ideas on transforming individuals through dignity, beauty, and commitment.

Bill Strickland leads Manchester Bidwell Corporation, which provides diverse programming to create empowering educational environments for young adults. This Corporation yielded the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild, which promotes a national model for education, culture, and hope through MCG Youth & Arts and MCG Jazz. The former provides classes and workshops in ceramics, photography, digital imaging, and design, while the latter is dedicated to preserving, promoting, and presenting jazz. Bill is replicating the Corporation's model throughout the country to help people form relationships and change the way we see one another, and the world around us.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
