The Palladium to host TEDx TampaBay, Body Electric Yoga & More!

tedx-events-081315

 

The Palladium will host this year’s TEDx TampaBay from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 5. TEDx is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals spark conversation and connection at the local level.

This year TEDx TampaBay has chosen “Emergence” as their event theme. Speakers will address how emerging technology and ideologies are changing our communities and the world. A full day of inspiring presenters, food, yoga, tech demos and more will be offered.

Tara Hechlik Newsom, Associate Professor of Social & Behavioral Science at SPC, will speak on “The Constitution: It’s Personal.” The talk will focus on the transformative power the Constitution has had on her students and how that has invigorated the community. Newsom is launching the college’s new Center for Civic Learning and Community Engagement.

General admission tickets, available for $40, are a great option for TED enthusiasts who thrive on stimulating, mind-expanding talks. The general admission ticket includes the free yoga session from The Body Electric Yoga Company, general seating in the theatre and a catered lunch.

For those who enjoy a front-row seat to all of the action and love the “goodies” available only to our “VIP” ticket holders, the $75 admission includes everything from the general admission package plus preferred seating in the theatre during the event, an event t-shirt and a swag bag courtesy of our sponsors. There are a limited number of discounted student tickets and students are encouraged to attend. Discount code is STUDENT when registering.

Check out more information and register on the TEDxTampaBay website.
