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).

Andy and Ariana

Andy and Ariana have spent the last seven and a half years getting to know and love Nova Scotia (ok, Ariana grew up in NS but moved away as a young adult, never to return...) This has involved much performing and recording, collaborations with other Nova Scotian acts, and presenting monthly local talent shows in Wolfville (and that's Talent with a capital T!). The two enjoy playing music for audiences of all ages, especially when they're all together at the same time, which is why they spend many a summer morning playing at Farmers' Markets around the province. Not to mention that local food is the best kind of food! Nova Scotia rocks really.
