In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx - where x means an independently organized TED event. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The TED conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, like ours, are self-organized.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. Learn more about TED at TED.com.
