We got inspired by Plato's Cave Allegory when we were deciding our theme. A way out could mean many things; a way out of our monotonous life, a way out of a condition that emotionally or physically unhealthy, a way out of the traditional boundaries that limits our creativity or a way out of a cave that gives us a completely different view of the world. We want to inspire people, show them they have the power to leave what's limiting them.
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).
