TEDxPhiladelphia (content development, exhibition implementation)

When the group behind TEDxPhiladelphia 2014 announced a call for pitches relevant to its theme, New Workshop of the World, I developed several on behalf of Bresslergroup. Based on those pitches, Mathieu Turpault was invited to speak at the annual conference. He and I developed the pitch into a TED Talk, working with the TEDxPhilly team to fine-tune it for the big day. (Watch Mathieu’s talk, The Disappearance of Everyday Objects.)

Bresslergroup was also invited to stage an exhibition during TEDxPhiladelphia’s Maker Fair on conference day. A group of us worked together to conceive of and implement an Ideation Station, an interactive exhibit where we invited TEDx audience members to solve a set of challenges using design thinking tools.
