TEDxLA will be an event where the village in which it is held will play a central role in how we have global impact. Where the action we take will be as important as the ideas we share.
Imagine if we could allow each speaker and performer to bring people together and allow them to visualize an “imagined future”. How can we offer everyone the opportunity to touch and feel an idea? Imagine we could transform the previous impossible into possibility by one idea.
Meet the team behind TEDxLA
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.
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 TEDxLA, live speakers will spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
