That's right, the ladies from SeeSaw Design, Kobina Banning, Nina Miller and John Takamura will be in one room on August 19. And all you have to do for the chance to rub elbows is apply.
TEDxPHXDC is part of the TEDx program -- the local-level baby of conference nonprofit Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED). At TEDx, community individuals and businesses can interact around live speakers. This time, they're teaming up with Phoenix design community to share ideas and swap geeky design stories, all while promoting local design.
There are only 60 spots, but before you stress, we'll let you in on a secret: the application's a cinch.
More event details and application link after the jump.
Like any good hype-generating event, TEDxPHXDC is hosted in a secret location that's revealed if you're chosen to attend.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
