With announcements on Facebook and Twitter, TEDxPhilly has declared that it will hold its latest iteration at the Temple University Performing Arts Center (formerly the Baptist Temple) on Tuesday, November 8th. Tickets are not yet available, however you can sign up for TEDxPhilly’s mailing list to be notified when they do.
TEDx is the independent version of the annual exclusive TED conference often held in California where dozens of notable speakers are given an 18-minute speaking slot.
TED – short for Technology, Entertainment, Design – licenses TEDx brands for communities to independently organize their own TED events. Last year, the first TEDxPhilly was held at the Kimmel Center, see our coverage here. Videos from last year’s event are available on YouTube.
In another tweet, TEDxPhilly announced that the theme of the event would be “The City”
