TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The x in TEDx indicates an independently organized TED event, and there are thousands of TEDx events throughout the world. At a TEDx event, live speakers and performers spark deep discussion and connection in the spirit of sharing “ideas worth spreading.”
TEDxQueensVillage brings the essence of Queens, showcasing local talent through talks and artistic performances.
This year, TEDxQueensVillage will be held in person, inviting attendees to gain knowledge of the community, education, and innovation during the half-day conference at Liberty Bible Fellowship Church.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TEDxQueensVillage is a local program that brings people together to share a TED-like experience. The goal of TEDxQueensVillage is to bring world-class TEDx talks to Queens, New York in an all-day event that inspires us to learn and think about our future.
We believe creating and starting is the key to completing any task, dream, or big idea.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California almost 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes on a diverse mix of topics. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The TED2014 Conference takes place in Vancouver, British Columbia, along with the TEDActive simulcast in neighboring Whistler. TEDGlobal 2014 will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; and TEDBooks, short e-books on powerful ideas. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
