It’s a world premiere of something Phoenicians — a lot of Phoenicians — have already been talking about: innovation. Think part TEDx (but less stuffy), part Ignite PHX (but longer), and part NerdNite (but not so niche).

The P.H.I.L. Talks -- which stands, appropriately, for Phoenicians Have Ideas Live -- takes the stage this week at downtown performance venue Space 55. The interactive info-night comprises presentations courtesy of neighbors, intellectuals, and self-proclaimed social media gurus. Moderated by Tim Eigo, the panel discussion features 10 pieces on a variety of topics, including public safety, human relationships, and how-tos on stuff you never thought you needed to know how to do. P.H.I.L. promises you’ll leave a whole new Phoenician.

Join the conversation at 8 p.m. Friday, September 12, at 636 East Pierce Street. General admission tickets are $10 online or at the door. Visit for details and tickets.
