Exciting news, TEDxPiscataquaRiver fans!

The 6th annual TEDxPiscataquaRiver, scheduled for Friday, September 7, 2018, is moving to Portsmouth’s historic Music Hall!

This triples seating capacity for our traditionally sold-out audience. 3S Artspace, site of four past TEDxPiscataquaRiver events, will remain venue host for brainstorm sessions, speaker and performer auditions and other related TEDx activities. We decided a venue change was necessary after past years’ events sold out in under two hours. The Music Hall seats more than 800 people; 3S Artspace seats 200.

In order to better meet our mission of sharing great ideas with the community–and enable more people to attend the event–we, together with the Music Hall and 3S Artspace, reached a new solution: the Music Hall, a long-time event partner, will host the TEDxPiscataquaRiver program; 3S Artspace will remain an event partner, hosting pre- and post-events, including speaker and performer auditions, meetings, and new surprises. We’re capping this year’s ticket sales at 650; prior events were capped at 200, so this essentially gives us 3 times more seating capacity.

People unable to attend TEDxPiscataquaRiver in person can continue to access our free, online live stream of the event; past years’ talks are posted on TEDx’s YouTube channel.

We’ll be announcing this year’s theme soon! In the meantime, if you’re interested in being a speaker, auditions are this May — that’s only a few weeks away — at 3S Artspace. We’ll announce those dates soon. Be sure to sign up for the latest news and follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram!
