What is a TEDx Salon?
Ever seen a TEDx video and wished you could ask the speaker questions? Now you can!
Salon events are small monthly gathers of community members that allow you to engage with TEDx speakers.
Order brunch with your ticket to dine with us!

What will we do at a TEDxKingLincolnBronzevilleSalon?
The Salons are Saturday morning interactive community conversations. The talks are shaped around 5 questions or talking points given to the audience to discuss in small groups. After the groups engage in small dialogue, there will be a question and answer section led by the featured guest.
