From the Government Lab To San Antonio Companies: Capturing Talent and commercializing Cybersecurity IP.  May 30 at Whitley Theological Center

With zero percent unemployment and revenues projected to be 168 billion dollars by 2020, the cybersecurity industry is something every city in the country wants a piece of.  San Antonio is uniquely positioned to grow that industry. Located right next door to the 24th Air Force and National Security Agency's Texas facility, San Antonio has access to top tier cybersecurity university programs, and has a developing portfolio of cybersecurity businesses.  The Department of Defense requests more than $53 billion in research and development dollars last year, $71 billion dollars the year before.

How can businesses capitalize on this? How do companies interact with government to create solutions for them and for the private sector with government knowledge? How does San Antonio take advantage of exiting government and military personnel to spin off companies and grow here? We talk with people that have done it, government officials and most importantly the businesses operating in the sphere. Texas Public Radio welcomes the public come out and take part in this 90-minute conversation.

Panelists: Rep. Will Hurd, Bob Gliechauf and Joe Krull

Considering Art: A Conversation with Susan Stamberg and Vincent Valdez, June 1, at McNay's Leeper Auditorium

TPR and the McNay Art Museum host a conversation with NPR Special Correspondent Susan Stamberg and San Antonio-born artist Vincent Valdez. Since 1971, when NPR began broadcasting, the Hall of Fame journalist has interviewed thousands, including world leaders, writers and the world-renowned artists. For this conversation, Stamberg turns her attention to Vincent Valdez and his painting, “The Strangest Fruit 9.” Months after becoming museum director, the McNay’s Richard Aste selected the large-scale piece as his first acquisition, a bold choice that has helped reframe and reenergize the museum’s position as a relevant, progressive community institution. Aste will start the conversation with Stamberg and Valdez, who will discuss Valdez’s evolution as an artist and his recent work that confronts violence, racism and identity in America.
