TCT hosting TedxTopeka event next month

 What started off as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago as a platform to share world changing ideas is now a global phenomenon that has played host to several world leaders and forward thinkers.

Now that platform has come to Topeka in the form of TedxTopeka, an independently organzied TED-like event designed to encourage conversation and community con­nections.

The event will take place at the Topeka Civic Theatre and Acade­my and will feature speakers from across the region sharing ideas and discussing a variety of topics.

“This event is an oppurtuni­ty for speakers from Topeka and surrounding areas to share their ideas with the world,” said Nathan Morris, TedxTopeka founder and organizer comminttee member in a press release.

TEDxTopeka will be held Nov 12th at 5 p.m. at the Topeka Civic Theater and Academy. Tickets are sold out but tickets can still pur­chased for $35 to attend a watch party in the Old Father Theater.

TEDx stands for technology, ed­ucation and design with the x de­noting that it is an independantly organized TED event.
