TEDxEvansville tickets go on sale Saturday, September 12

EVANSVILLE, IND. – Tickets go on sale this weekend for Evansville’s first TEDx event, scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the Evansville Museum’s Koch Immersive Theater. Fourteen speakers have been selected to give short, powerful talks centered around the TEDxEvansville theme of renaissance – rebirth, revival and renewal.


TEDxEvansville organizers will sell tickets in person at this weekend’s Franklin Street Bazaar. There are 65 available tickets priced at $65 each. Tickets will be sold one per person. Those who line up for tickets Saturday but don’t snag one of the 65 seats inside the Immersive Theater may still have an opportunity to experience TEDxEvansville close to the action and will be eligible to receive a ticket to a TEDxEvansville viewing party scheduled near the main event.

Organizers will also be available to answer questions on hosting a TEDxEvansville viewing party and other details about the event.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
