ABOUT TEDx

X = INDEPENDANTLY ORGANIZED EVENT.

IN THE SPIRIT OF IDEAS WORTH SPREADING TEDx IS A PROGRAM OF SELF-ORGANIZED EVENTS THAT BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO SHARE A TED-LIKE EXPERIENCE TO A TEDx EVENT, TED TALK VIDEOS AND LIVE SPEAKERS COMBINE TO SPARK DEEP DISCUSSION AND CONNECTION IN A SMALL GROUP. THESE LOCAL SELF-ORGANIZED EVENTS ARE BRANDED TEDx WHERE x = INDEPENDANTLY 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)
