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 TEDxConcordiaUPortland, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxConcordiaUPortland event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
What is TEDxConcordiaUPortland?
It’s an independently organized and licensed TEDx community. The event on March 23, 2013 is our flagship event featuring approximately 18 live speakers and performers who will share their ideas worth spreading in 18 minutes or less. We also offer a series of Adventures hosted by past and future TEDxConcordiaUPortland speakers and partners. Information about these can be found on our website and Eventbrite.
Our theme for 2013 is Velocity - to act is to choose a direction and a speed. Every day, people move forward, change course, or stop what they're doing in the name of positive action. Join us this year at TEDxConcordiaUPortland as we act together to determine our Velocity.
