How do you turn an idea into a project, how do you build a team, leverage resources and relationships and measure success.
We will explore the human experience. Our commute, our workspace, our homes, our third places, our community, our relationships, our families and our friends.
We will learn about the smallest elements of life and the universe: Drones, nanotechnology, subatomic particles, neuroscience, and biology.
Witness how perspective shapes ideas. Your view of anything depends on where you are in relation to that object.
Design, politics, architecture, art, music, science are constantly judged. Our hope is to look at the perspective from which they can be judged and how that affects opinions towards concepts in those areas.

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.
