TEDxCity2.0: A day of urban inspiration.

“For one day only, the TEDx platform will harness the power of people across the globe to encourage them to host a TEDx event, themed “City 2.0,” featuring the brightest local minds and biggest hearts.

In unison, we’ll share the stories of our beloved homes. Where are the bright spots? The creative adaptations? The transformative responses to injustice? Who is asking the most pressing questions? Pioneering the most complex solutions? Speakers may focus on official City 2.0 themes, including Art, Education, Food, Health, Housing, Play, Public Space, and Safety–all elements whose presence will dictate the success of our future cities.”

I’ll have the pleasure of speaking at theTEDxCoMo event on Saturday, October 13, exploring how cities are planned (or not) and the rising phenomenon of organically occurring arts districts.
