TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community.
TEDxRiodelaPlata took over a power plant turned cultural center in the neighborhood of La Boca, Buenos Aires for the first multi-day TEDx event in Latin America. With over 1,000 attendees, 200 volunteers, 18.000 online livestream viewers, and over 25 speakers and performers, the event truly shined a light on technology, entertainment, design and beyond.
TEDxGowanus was the first TEDx event to be held in the Brooklyn, NY industrial hub known for its arts, culture, and complex history. The event featured 21 speakers and performers, addressing everything from eco-infrastructure to the "Bookternet."
TEDxPortofSpain's third event brought 10 speakers and performers together in the Trinidad and Tobago capital city to address the theme Connecting. Talks from experts on topics like agroforestry, tackling inequalities in the tech industry, and the state of midwifery in the Caribbean inspired and ignited conversation.
What is TEDx?
The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.
At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos -- or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos -- sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level.
TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.
