About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxWomen is a TEDx event organized by the Paley Center (NY) that focuses on women, and women's issues. (Visit www.tedxwomen.org) Our event is called TEDxElliottBayWomen, where x=independently organized TED event, and is one of the many TEDx events happening around the globe on December 1 that will engage in and expand upon the events and ideas brought up at TEDxWomen. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. TEDxElliottBayWomen is thrilled to share the spirit and energy that is TEDx and TEDxWomen with Seattle/Bainbridge/KitsapPenninsula. A HUGE thanks to Bainbridge Museum of Art. Without their directors' genuine community spirit and generosity this would not be happening.
