What is TEDx?
“A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and videos previously recorded at TED conferences are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have features in common.” TED Website
And here’s what that means for you! On November 17th Torquay will be hosting such a TED-like event organised by the community, for the community. We’ll be celebrating TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading whilst also celebrating the innovation and talent of our hometown. We’ll be shining a spotlight on some of the voices you wont have heard from and bringing to light some of the ideas you might not have realised originated on your own doorstep. As well as this, we’ll welcome incredible thinking from around the world through the screening of talks and performances from the main TED archive, for a full day event which we hope will leave you inspired and invigorated.
