TEDx Philadelphia is one of the hottest tickets in town for city enthusiasts eager for fresh and creative ideas about how to return our urban home to its past glories. TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading,” and it started as a four-day conference in California nearly 30 years ago. TEDx is a local, self-organized manifestation of the same goal and this year, Philadelphia’s third year of programming focuses on the phrase “The New Workshop of the World.”…

“Being a good TED host is about loving Philadelphia, and I’m such a lover of Philadelphia,” [Christopher Bartlett] said, revealing his talk will be about capturing the success of minority neighborhoods in Philadelphia, the Gayborhood and Chinatown, and drawing parallels for why they thrive. “What makes these cultural districts work and what makes these neighborhoods thrive?” he asks. One of Philadelphia’s leading experts on LGBT issues, the Passyunk Square resident even ruminated on the potential of a migrating border of the Gayborhood, wondering if 12th and Passyunk could be Philadelphia’s Gayborhood in 20 years.
