an Invite

TED Talks are insightful, thought provoking and entertaining. They help us find inspiration or motivation. They help us pass the time or get over writers block. Over the past 4 years, TED has exploded in viewership due in no small part to the emergence of TEDx, which is the independently organized TED conference that started at USC in 2009.

The independently organized TEDxVeniceBeach conference has now arrived!

On Sunday, September 15th, 12+ brilliant and innovative speakers and performers will give the talk of their lives in less than 18 minutes for an audience of 300 smart and curious disruptors, creative types, misfits, deep thinkers and relentless tinkerers. We want you to be one of those 300.

Who is TED?

TED isn't a who, it's a what. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, three broad subject areas that are shaping our future. TEDxVeniceBeach is an independently produced offspring of the annual TED gathering of big brains and cool creators.

What's with the X?

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

Why in Venice Beach?

Because TED and Venice Beach are synonymous. Innovation, technology, artistic expression, health and wellness and entrepreneurship in Venice Beach are what make it a place like no other. It’s been at our core since 1905. As the cities founder said, “I always had a dream of building an ideal city which should be partly for study, partly for recreation, and partly for health." He succeeded. And TEDx naturally belongs here.
