TEDxSacramento: City2.0

The latest TEDxSacramento event, City2.0, focuses on stories of “urban ingenuity.” This evening lecture, which takes place at the Crest Theatre, explores topics such as education and art, food and housing, technology and transportation—and their connection to modern, everyday life. Landscape architect Jerry van Eyck, renowned for his works and collaborations in cities such as New York City, London and Qingdao, China, headlines with a discussion centered on “creative thinking and the manipulation of public space.” In addition, there will be live performances and other speakers, including some streamed in from a parallel New York-based TEDx event. Friday, September 20; 7 p.m., $35-$150; 1013 K Street, http://tedxsacramento.com.
