Come join others committed to "Ideas Worth Spreading" at TEDxBirminghamSalon. It is a series of free recurring events leading up to TEDxBirmingham. The format for Salon events is two 40 minute sessions of TED Talks videos, with time before, in between, and after to connect and converse. There are no live speakers at Salon events. The theme for the August 21 Salon is "The Arts" and will focus on inspiring creative growth and self-expression. It is not necessary to have a background in this area, however if you aren't interested in this theme, please consider not registering to leave space for those who are. Future Salons will each focus on different themes. Registration will open at 12pm CDT on August 7, and close at 12pm CDT on August 14. Register early, as seats are extremely limited.
