The Palladium at St. Petersburg College will host this year’s TEDx TampaBay on Saturday, Sept. 5, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. TEDx is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals spark conversation and connection at the local level.
This year TEDx TampaBay has chosen “Emergence” as their event theme. Speakers will address how emerging technology and ideologies are changing our communities and the world. A full day of inspiring presenters, food, yoga, tech demos and more will be offered.
Tara Hechlik Newsom, Associate Professor of Social & Behavioral Science at SPC, will speak on “The Constitution: It’s Personal.” The talk will focus on the transformative power the Constitution has had on her students and how that has invigorated the community. Newsom is launching the college’s new Center for Civic Learning and Community Engagement.
