Press Play

If people say they don’t like TED Talks or events, we think they’re either lying or they’ve never experienced one. Anything from fish farming to a photographer reconnecting with a past subject becomes fascinating due to the way TED speakers present it. On Sunday, April 26, at 2 p.m. see what we’re talking about live at Mesa Arts Center, One East Main Street, during Press Play presented by TEDxPhoenix. Phoenix’s independently organized but licensed by TED event will look at what it takes to forge your own path through the stories and shared experiences of the chosen speakers. Tickets are $49.99 and proceeds from the event go towards future TEDxPhoenix events. To get more information and to buy tickets, visit,, or call 480-644-6500.
