    The Salt Lake City Arts Council is pleased to present its newest Finch Lane Flash Project: DED Talks. DED Talks will be a virtual video release on October 31, 2020.DED: Ideas Worth DreadingDED is a nonprofit devoted to dreadful ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. DED began in 1984 B.C. at a coven where Death, Education, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics—from science to business to global issues. Meanwhile, independently operated unDED events help infect communities around the world.UPCOMING DED TALKS INCLUDE:We Should All Be VampiresIn this classic DED talk that started a worldwide conversation about Vampirism, ex-vegan venture capitalist Count Kalanick asks that we begin to dream about and plan for a more reverent, and more revenant, society.The Power of InvulnerabilityA mysterious person wearing a mask and wielding a large pair of hedge-clippers asks us to join the movement for worldwide climate justice—and reminds us of the special service S.N.I.P.s (Supernaturally Indestructible Psychopaths) have to offer humanity.What I Learned Studying the Human Mind. And Eating It.How do you talk to someone who doesn't believe in climate change? “We can’t do it by resurrecting the same old data and facts,” says the reanimated corpse of social psychologist Avery Hoffman. The answer lies in how humanoids—living and undead—form communities.
