TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos -- or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos -- sparks deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
What you'll find at every TEDx event:
The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all TEDx events have several features in common.
TED's celebrated format: A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances (given live, or through TED Talks from TED.com) on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder -- and to provoke conversations that matter
TED Talks videos: A minimum of two pre-recorded talks from the acclaimed TED Talks video series (these talks are available free on TED.com)
Bias-free programming: Lack of any commercial, religious or political agenda
