Throughout history, Pittsburgh has been the epicenter of innovations that have changed the world. And this June TEDxPittsburgh takes over the Byham Theater to showcase and spread ideas that promise to transform our city, region, and the world.
As an offshoot of the incredibly popular TED Conference, TEDx is the hyper-local, independently organized version of the larger TED-experience. In preparation for this year’s local TEDx event the Pittsburgh team, an all-volunteer squad, has been working around the clock to create the region’s premier platform for transformative and thought-provoking ideas.
In an effort to achieve those ideals, the PGH team has selected 11 speakers who will present talks related to this year’s theme – Awakening: Ideas on the rise, celebrating the incredible ideas that continue to rise up from every corner of the Pittsburgh region. Attendees will also be treated to presentations by three performers/filmmakers. These inspiring talks will take place at the equally as incredible Byham Theater in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District.
