TEDxDetroit will bring together the area’s leading thinkers, designers, entertainers, entrepreneurs, scientists, artists and students for an inspiring day to celebrate ideas worth spreading this fall.
“When it all comes together TEDxDetroit is part business conference, part science fair, part art festival and part revival,” said Charlie Wollborg, curator of TEDxDetroit and co-founder of Moka Boka Adventure Books. “It really is a crazy day that fills your head with new ideas, your belly with fire, and puts the spring back in your step.”
Do you have an idea worth spreading?
Now is also the time for aspiring TEDxDetroit speakers, performers, and exhibitors to apply to be part of the 11th annual event. Applications are now open online at tedxdetroit.com. The line-up for this year’s event will be announced in mid-September.
“We fill the stage with people who make us think, laugh, cry, and say ‘wow!’” said Janet Tyler, Executive Director. “It’s always an eclectic array ranging from CEOs to artists to scientists that you won’t find anywhere else.”
The annual event returns 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6 at the Masonic Temple, located at 500 Temple Street in Detroit. Tickets go on sale for TEDxDetroit beginning Tuesday, August 13th at tedxdetroit.com.
