I volunteered at TEDx WDC and met some great creative people, heard some great talks and learnt about projects happening in DC.
Held at THEARC in Congress Heights on March 24th 2012. The theme of the TEDxWDC event was The Creative City: Creativity, Entrepreneurship and Innovation. The audience consisted of individuals highly interested in creative ideas and movements here in the Washington D.C. area.
TEDxWDC presenters shared their vision and ideas on DC’s creative community.
Full event included access to TEDxWDC // Coffee & breakfast // Lunch by Busboys & Poets // 20+ Awesome DC Presenters // Cocktail Reception
