TEDx Fayetteville event planned for March 27 at Walton Arts Center

Are you guys familiar with TED? We’re oversimplifying, but it’s basically a series of conferences featuring smart people giving talks about interesting ideas.

We ask, because locals David Bradley and Brent Robinson are planning a TED event here in Fayetteville later this month, and we thought that some of you might be interested.

TEDx Fayetteville (the x means independently organized) is set for Wednesday, March 27 at Walton Arts Center, and will feature 10 local speakers including KUAF news director Kyle Kellams, University of Arkansas Vice Provost for Distance Education Javier Reyes, Tri Cycle Farms founder Don Bennet, and others with “ideas worth spreading.”

The theme for the local event is Discovery, with a focus on “uncovering and exposing the potential and beauty of Northwest Arkansas.”

Tickets to the event are $35, and registration is available at tedxfayetteville.com.
