TEDxABQ, the annual “big idea” presentation by dozens of 505 movers and shakers, has sold out its event at the National Hispanic Cultural Center this coming Saturday, Sept. 10. No surprise there. The good news is organizers have added two simulcasts of the event—one in Santa Fe and one here in Albuquerque at UNM’s School of Architecture & Planning. There are 200 seats up for grabs at UNM. In order to get one, you need to RSVP right away to the TEDxABQ website. Tickets for the simulcast are free, but will go fast. The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. inside the Architecture & Planning School’s Garcia Honda Auditorium. Among the inspiring speakers rattling off their brief, brilliant ideas about art, technology, social change, medicine, finance and more are Dr. Arthur Kaufman, Henry Rael, Ries Robinson, Nancy Judd and Hakim Bellamy. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Listen, learn, meet and greet and be inspired!
