TEDxConcordiaUPortland - Kelly Rodgers & Kelley Roy - "That's so Portland"

Authors of Cartopia: Portland's Food Cart Revolution Kelley Roy is the Director of ADX, a membership based art and design facility in the heart of Portland's Central Eastside. Equal parts workspace and incubator, the membership-based 10,000SF facility unites a number of creative disciplines under one roof, giving the community an accessible, collaborative, supportive site for creative work. From wood and metal shops, to co-working desks, to private studios (housed in swanky vintage travel trailers), ADX's amenities offer the opportunity for designers of all stripes to explore their craft, prototype products, enlist the support of industry experts, and display and sell work in an adjacent gallery. ADX also provides a diverse schedule of classes and a range of programming. Memberships are available for those wanting to utilize the space and equipment on a part-time basis. Members can then choose between hourly, daily, and monthly use of the wood shop, metal shop, and other production areas. Ms. Roy's passion is all things Portland, and she provides business and marketing consulting services for Portland artists and designers who want to make a living doing what they love. Kelly Rodgers is the principal of Confluence Planning. Since moving to Portland in 1995, Kelly has worked in a variety of areas to support the development of a sustainable city, including neighborhood planning, green infrastructure, community design, renewable energy, and sustainable transportation. In other words, she has been working to create cities where people know their neighbors, where resources are used efficiently, where people don't have to get in the car to meet their basic needs, and where it's possible to work collaboratively on creative energy, food, and housing solutions. Kelly's relationship with food carts began simply as a cartivore, but her interest was piqued further by their rapid growth and their increasingly elaborate street presence. She has grown to appreciate food carts not only for their architectural personality and contribution to street life, but also for their role in the artisan economy. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
