At our annual gala event, we film 6-8 new TEDTalks on a broad-reaching theme and includes a vibrant social component to spark deep connections within our community. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized and funded. We appreciate your support.
Our TEDxSalons go deep into one specific topic, with insights from leaders in their field. These Salons will promote thoughtful inquiry, broadened points of view, and include time for a moderated Question and Answer segment between our featured speakers and audience questions.
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.
