TEDxPerryvilleCorrectional took place at the all-female Perryville prison complex in Goodyear, Arizona on Thursday, April 19, 2018.
Speakers from within Perryville’s incarcerated population, as well as members of the public, presented on topics and provided artistic performances related to the theme, “Behind the Curtain: Brains, Beauty, Business and Beyond”.
Michelle Cirocco, Televerde’s Global Head of Marketing, speaks with Troy Hayden of FOX10 News as she discusses TEDxPerryvilleCorrectional, how the idea was born, the work completed to bring it to life, and the impact this event brings to the community.
FOX10 also interviewed Valerie Ochoa, a current inmate at Perryville and speaker at TEDxPerryvilleCorrectional. While Valerie’s TEDx talk revolved around the topic of contributing value as a businesswoman inside prison, this interview focused on the living environment inside the walls of Perryville.
