Early this year, TEDxAustin debuted with the Play Big event at the original Austin City Limits studio. We can’t confirm, but strongly suspect that we can lay claim to being the only TEDx event to be held at a Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame landmark.
Early next year, the TEDxAustin event moves to Austin Music Hall; a venue also steeped in the music and history of our city. Coincidentally, Austin City Limits will move house too, just blocks away and into larger digs at the new W Hotel.
And at this moment, as we sit in the midst of planning, curating, expanding and anticipating our second event, TEDxAustin: Right Now, we feel thankful for what was and what will be. We’re thankful to generous Sponsor Partners, an enthusiastic community and a dynamic city that inspires us to want and do better.
You can get a sense of the day that was by watching this less-than-2-minute video of TEDxAustin: Play Big, as it happened on 02.20.10. And you can be part of next year’s memories – but only if you apply to attend TEDxAustin: Right Now, taking place 02.19.11.
