TED is coming to town and we are super excited! The prolific speaker series is holding it’s MidAtlantic event this year on October 29 at Sidney Harman Hall with over 20 speakers. The concept for the gather is to bring together some of the world’s most fascinating, innovative and influential individuals with the challenge to give “the talk of their life” on a specific subject. This year the theme is “A Sense of Place.”
Included in the line up are leaders from Google, the Case Foundation, Johns Hopkins, NASA, CMU, Princeton, Yahoo, POGO, and Chef Jose Andres is even going to be there! Building on the theme of “A Sense of Place”, our existence is defined through our experience of place: our place on Earth, in Cities, in culture, and in time. Understanding place is critical to the spread of knowledge, ideas and to progress. There is also going to be a conversation with the cast of HBOs the Wire moderated by Judy Woodruff. These events are really well put together and inspiring, we are certainly excited and can’t wait to be there! Who else is going?
Time: All Day (8am – 8pm) October 29th
Place: Sidney Harman Hall in Washington, DC
