Kansas City's TEDxKC Challenges You To Participate


Since 2009, Kansas City has hosted its own extension of the TED lecture series, TEDxKC. This year, something new has been introduced: members of the public are invited to submit their own lecture ideas, for the chance to win a place in the lineup of presenters.

On Tuesday's Up to Date we talk about this year's TEDxKC - this year's theme, the challenge, why a spot on stage is up for grabs, and how you can participate.

Guest: Mike Lundgren​ has organized TEDxKC since it began, and is a partner at the ad firm VML.

Event Details: TEDxKC takes place Saturday, August 9th at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. The event is sold out.
