Thought-provoking insights and ideas how we’ll live, work and thrive in the world to come.

Saturday Sept 15th 6pm
James Dunn Theater @ College of Marin in Kentfield


We stand on the verge ASTOUNDING NEW TECHNOLOGIES which will infuse our culture and change life as we know it. In the process, we need to rethink what will be gained – and lost – in this dramatic transition.

How will we find a life of purpose as the world becomes virtual, global, and automated? How can we maintain peace of mind in a constant stream of dinging phones and digital media? What oncoming innovations promise to rewrite what’s possible in health, energy and economy?  Will these innovations finally support a better, more balanced life for us and our children? Or will tomorrow’s technologies even further erode the boundaries between our lives and our labors?  

From the molecular to the grand, the many new ways we’ll engage with technology are creating a changing experience of our very humanity. This year’s TEDxMarin’s show will explore the pitfalls and promises of our technology-infused future, and the impact that could have on our most human experience.

This convergence of humanity and the technology we wield is forcing a rethink of our search for meaning, joy, profession, health and purpose. TEDxMarin will explore how to both embrace technologies that usher in a more free, abundant and connected world while identifying the impact it’s already having on our minds, our bodies, sense of purpose and traditions.

TEDxMarin 2018 will offer a big picture view of this emerging coexistence, and bring inspiration to our Bay Area community with thought-provoking ideas how we’ll live, work and thrive in the world to come.

Our 2018 Gathering will include:   An indoor/outdoor Attendee Reception catered with passed appetizers by Good Earth Natural FoodsWe will have an open wine tasting bar hosted by Muum-Napa and Kenwood Wineries, a water Bar, our 2018 Innovator Company Showcase (w/some wow demos), the Live Filming of this years TEDTalks inside the beautiful James Dunn Theater, plus a post-talk Meet the Speakers dessert reception in the Lobby.
