What are TEDx Events?

For over twenty years, TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) has unleashed Ideas Worth Spreading via scores of enlightening talks given by experts in every field at gatherings in Long Beach and at TED Global events (which currently take place in Edinburgh). In order to bring the ever impactful experience of TED to an even wider audience, TED began its TEDx initiative in 2009, whereby local communities could hold their own TED events. TEDxBeaconStreet, where x = independently organized TED event, will take place on November 17 and 18 at various locations in the Greater Boston area. Through intriguing talks and innovative Adventures, our conference will link the best traditions of innovation together with earnest thought and dialog, uniting intergenerational, diverse audiences from the Greater Boston area and beyond around our central theme, Ideas In Action.
