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.
Thinking Without a Box:
Rules are intended to be learned, followed, mastered, and then broken, so as to make way for the new rules. The past 25 years of American history have demonstrated the ability to create paradigms, settle into them, and then see them shift dramatically. Thinking Without a Box encourages its speakers and spectators alike to abandon the previous ways of getting things done. The box, and its metaphorical four walls, no longer exists.
