The Kaneko announced its first event of 2009 last week. Sir Ken Robinson, author of The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything opens Kaneko’s 2009 “Great Minds” lecture series.

Robinson has worked with European and Asian government agencies, Fortune 500 companies, non-profits and cultural organizations to do something simple: try to bring the best out of people. His speaking engagements come with profoundly serious messages spliced with humor, passion and wit. In 2005, Time/Fortune/CNN named him a “Principal Voice” and in 2003, Queen Elizabeth II knighted him for services to the arts.

Signed copies of his books The Element and Out of Our Minds: Learning how to be Creative will be available before and after the lecture, and the Kaneko/UNO Library will have materials about Robinson available for review beginning Feb. 19.

Tickets for the Feb. 26 lecture go on sale Jan. 12 and are $25 for adults and $15 for students. The lecture begins at 7 p.m. at Kaneko, 1111 Jones St. For reservations, email info@thekaneko.org. For more information on the speaker, visit www.sirkenrobinson.com.
