If you're not familiar with http://www.ted.com/ it is a great resource containing high quality lectures from around the world on a wide variety of topics, many of which bear on urbanism in particular and others on critical analysis of society in general. The local version of that is taking place this Saturday in Winter Garden.

Sounds extremely interesting! I would love to have this lecture at the Gulf Coast Shakespeare Festival on Nov. 19th! How can I contact them?

There are actually several lectures throughout the day. You should check out tedxorlando.com and see if you can get in touch with Dave Casey.

What is Dave's number? Any

What is Dave's number? Any lectures or presentations to do with the arts or classic literature would be of interest to me.

TEDx conferences have to be

TEDx conferences have to be planned, they do not travel. I have been attempting to put together a TEDX in the Naples/Ft. Myers area for a while. If any of you are in this area, please contact me. It is a lot of work. I live in Naples and they require you to hold the event in the town you reside in. I have been going back and forth with them hoping to get an exception but it's not happening. 

I am on facebook under the group, SWFL Arts Incubator. If you would like to get involved, join the group and post your interest on the wall. I have been in discussion and have support from some really key people so even if TEDX doesn't work out, we are all interested in holding a symposium on the arts for our region, sooner than later.

I meant to say they are

I meant to say they are planned for a specific city/town. TEDX will not let you take a planned conference to another city. They have vast, strict rules you must follow for your event. 

Too bad I didn't get notice earlier or I would come up. (I now have to work all day Saturday.)

Thanks Stacey, I'm sad you

Thanks Stacey, I'm sad you won't be able to make it on Saturday. The phrase "vast, strict rules you must follow" sums it up beautifully, and really made my day. If there is anything we can do to help with your event, please let me know.

 

Our list of presenters is posted at http://tedxorlando.org/presenters.php -if any of them seem like they might be a good fit for the Shakespeare Festival, let me know via the contact tab under my profile on this site, or email me at dave at tedxorlando dot com and I will help you get in touch with them.
