TEDxMarin‘s mission seeks to connect and collaborate with organizations, individuals, educators, companies, A-list speakers, community leaders and thinkers whose visions align with ours: building strong, smart, understanding communities through education, social interaction, innovation, new ideas and a spark of entertainment. TEDxMarin hosts a few member gatherings throughout the year.

And what is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Ours is called TEDxMarin, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMarin event, TEDTalks videos, live speakers and social interaction will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in our community. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

We hope you will join us at a future gathering.
