Transformation begins with us—help rewrite the legacy of your community this fall with TEDxAmericasFinestCity!

Join us on Saturday, October 11th as we explore the power of the individual and examine the awe-inspiring strength of a collectively built idea, carried throughout each level of consciousness—individual, communal and global.

Carefully constructed around the ideas culminated at our first unique brainstorming event of the year, Transformation Through Us will feature a compendium of innovative ideas from the minds of San Diego’s best and brightest!

Featuring a collection of dynamic and thought provoking speakers, the event will transform the way you see the world and your place in it by introducing you to a group of creative and pioneering individuals.
