TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. 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 a TEDx event, TEDTalks video 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.
Every year, the brightest minds of our community come together for a one-day conference to share ideas on health, education, technology, the arts, and more-all of them related to the Temecula Valley or our region. When have you been on the brink of something wonderful? Of something disastrous? What are we on the brink of in our local community, the nation, on the planet? These are just some questions TEDxTemecula plans to explore during its sixth annual production.
The TEDxTemecula mission is to bring together the valley’s brightest thinkers, performers and visionaries to explore what’s possible in the community and beyond. The annual event is a four-hour live presentation showcasing artists, musicians, innovators, and thought leaders. The talks are filmed and posted to the TEDx channel for the world to see.
Last year, eight local speakers presented short but thought-provoking talks to a full house at the theatre in Temecula’s Old Town.
“Each year, we aim to create an unforgettable event where the audience can experience, discover, explore, and celebrate the exciting innovation happening in our backyard,” said McLaughlin.
