About TEDx: TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events offered in the spirit of ideas worth sharing that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talk videos 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.* See https://www.ted.com/tedx for more information.
