The THEME for our 2017 TEDTALKS was: “BENDING THE BOX Ideas. Myths. Possibilities.

TEDxMarin 2017 explored emerging ideas, old myths and fresh possibilities that may fundamentally shift our emerging culture and future. Whether it’s the search for meaning, joy, profession or purpose, or a desire to innovate and address global and cultural issues, TEDxMarin looks to inspire and illuminate our Bay Area community with thought-provoking ideas reframing our vision of what’s possible.
