Lily Yeh, an internationally celebrated artist, makes the case that each of us has the power to change the world for better if we are able to listen to the voice from our heart, and have the courage to respond to life's calling. When we let compassion guide our actions, transformation happens.

At TEDxCornellU, November 17, 2013, Yeh discusses her development of a unique methodology for using the arts as a medium for personal and social transformation.

The Center for Transformative Action is proud to have organized this TEDx event, which celebrated the many ways in which knowledge is put to work in pursuit of economic vitality, ecological sustainability, and social well-being. Co-sponsored by Entrepreneurship@Cornell; Cornell's Engaged Learning + Research; Cornell's College of Architecture, Art and Planning; the Johnson School of Management's Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute; the Iscol Family Program for Leadership in Public Service; Cornell's Global Health Program and departments of Government, Development Sociology, and Art; the Alternatives Federal Credit Union; and GreenStar Cooperative Market.
