TED, the non-profit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, has seeded another project in the heartland of creative thinkers: Brooklyn, NY.

Welcome TEDxBrooklyn 2010.

TEDxBrooklyn is a local, self-organized off-shoot of big TED, where x = independently organized TED event. This Saturday, November 13th at the Pratt Institute, TEDxBrooklyn 2010 brings together TEDTalks video and live speakers for lively debate among a small, engaged audience.

A diverse array of artists, scientists, activists and thinkers will be presenting this Saturday, including:

Musician, media artist and recent Columbia University Music P.H.D. Daniel Iglesia.







Street and performance artist Swoon.








Ecological designer and architect Mitchell Joachim.








DJ Spooky.










And global health-care advocate and former first daughter, Barbara Bush, among many others…

If you’ve seen a TED event online, and you liked what you saw, or you are interested in spending your day listening to and engaging in charged dialogue with inspired thinkers, register online or volunteer your time!

TEDxBROOKLYN 2010 needs audience members like you.

TEDxBrooklyn will take place November 13th at the Pratt Institute, 200 Willoughby Ave. For more information, visit tedxbrooklyn.com/.
