Apply to Attend TEDxPHXDC

TEDxPHXDC may look like just a lot of capital letters, but rest assured -- it's a locally based TED, or speaking series event, hosted by the Phoenix design community.

This year's theme, Urban Catalysts, will bring several local design minds to talk urban design and ideas in Phoenix's urban environment on January 26 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Phoenix Urban Research Lab (or PURL).

Decryption complete. Now you just have to get a ticket.

Local designer and TEDxPHXDC coordinator Mark Dudlik says this year's speakers were chosen because they're "trying to help Phoenix be as great as it can be."

Speakers include Cindi Farmer, a designer for the provost at ASU, Peter Wolf, an ASU lecturer and "recovering engineer," and Michael Levine, an engineer and artist, to name a few. Dudlik says full speaker biographies will be available online by the end of the week.

You can apply to attend TEDxPHXDC on its website through January 20. Event coordinators will then send out notifications and attendance is $10.
