Welcome to TEDxPonceyHighland’s inaugural event — UNEARTH 2019! Our mission is to establish a platform for those sectors of the population that need spaces for their voices to be heard. This encompasses people who come from grassroots beginnings, from less-acknowledged places, difficult life experiences, or transitional spaces — such as people just out of college or graduate school, freshly stepping into the work force, working for brand-new start-ups, or who are part of programs that offer opportunities to people with lack of accessibility: refugees, immigrants, LGBTQ+, minorities, lower SES and likewise. Given today’s political climate, along with the localized population growth spurt Atlanta has been experiencing, we think it’s more important than ever for overlooked voices to be heard and understood. Let’s open the gateway for challenging conversations in order to strengthen who we are as a community.
We are EXTREMELY excited to announce this year that we will be partnering with the historical landmark Plaza Atlanta Theatre in hosting our event for SUNDAY, MARCH 24, 2019 at 4PM.
TICKETS WILL GO ON SALE IN EARLY FEBRUARY.
RSVP/bookmark this page (and our FB page if you haven’t already!) to stay updated, especially for our potential EARLY BIRD promotions! For complete transparency: TEDx is a non-profit platform. That means this event, while licensed under TEDx, is entirely independently run and the team is working on a wholly volunteer basis. Therefore, all proceeds from tickets will go towards funding the event itself.
DOORS WILL OPEN AT 3:30, so please try to arrive early so you can mix/mingle & secure a parking space & a good seat!
Parking is available in front of the theater and in the lot behind the complex. There is also parallel parking on the side streets off of Ponce.
We are SUPER stoked about our speaker line-up. We have found a diverse and inspiring group of people whom we believe align seamlessly with our theme and mission statement. Each speaker will be announced, with introductions, in succession as we near closer to the event date.
As always, feel free to PM us or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, concerns, comments, or if you just want to chat!
