TEDxOrlando streams its event this weekend for free


What’s the next best thing to dressing up for a fancy TEDxOrlando event at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts? Watching it at home in your jammies with a plate of Froot Loops. TEDxOrlando sold out all its tickets to the event, but you can still watch along for free on its Facebook livestream. (Or, just announced: You can hit the Church Street Exchange or Pop Parlour UCF for a live stream on the big screen. No jammies or Froot Loops, though.)

Whether you’re at home or lucky enough to have purchased a ticket, get ready to enjoy deep discussions from interesting local speakers like Albert Manero, founder of Limbitless Solutions, which makes 3-D printed robotic arms for children in need, or Dr. Joshua Stephany, the Orange County Chief Medical Examiner who helped respond to the Pulse tragedy. There will also be performances by the Orlando Gay Chorus and Studio 18 Musicians. Enjoy from wherever you are!

2-6 p.m. Saturday, June 24 | Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | drphillipscenter.org | facebook.com/tedxorlando | sold out, free to livestream
