What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBrookings, where x = independently organized TED event. The TEDxBrookings event will be an entire experience with yoga, martial arts, snow shoeing, local food, insightful speakers and lunch. The goal is to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group of people who want to improve the community of Brookings and the Midwest region. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Learn more about TEDxBrookings.
