Spreading ideas. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world, so we’re presenting here, in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, USA, a forum that offers knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other. We are a community welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world.
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.)
