This spring, TEDxPhiladelphia will turn the spotlight on the best and brightest brains in the city.
Set for Friday, March 28, TEDxPhiladelphia will draw on talented members of Philadelphia’s creative community to give talks, performances and exhibitions around the 2014 conference theme The New Workshop of the World, celebrating the community of makers, doers, entrepreneurs and artists that make this city a hub for innovation.
Who do you want to hear from?
Each speaker has just 18 minutes to compel audiences with an influential presentation, but topics can run the gamut from healthcare to food to social justice.
