*About TEDxPhoenixSalon Events* TEDxPhoenixSalon events are more intimate, and less formal versions of our larger TEDxPhoenix event.

At TEDxPhoenixSalon, we aim to foster deep connection, engage attendees, and explore new ideas and ways of thinking through a more intimate and less formal version of our larger TEDxPhoenix event. TEDxPhoenixSalon is a gathering of curious minds, and a great way to spend an evening with fellow fans of (T)echnology, (E)ntertainment, (D)esign.

This year's TEDPrize is being awarded to one wish that promotes innovation, education, culture, and economic opportunity for the city of the future, the City 2.0.

And what better way to be a part of this wish than by partnering with TEDxScottsdale, a local TEDx event that since its inception has been fostering ideas centered around making our city a better place and space.

For our first event of 2012, we would like to welcome Robert (a.k.a. Bob) Diehl of TEDxScottsdale as our guest curator and organizer for the March 15th "Being, Walking, Speaking" TEDxPhoenixSalon at GateWay Community College.

Bob will be bringing his brand of Urban Resilience to our TEDxPhoenixSalon via a group of urban champions and denizens that have dedicated their lives to making cities more walkable, habitable, and memorable.
