About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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. Our event is called TEDxCambridge, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
TEDxCambridge is a premier event and technology exhibition at the Boston Opera House that celebrates the remarkable innovation, creativity, and inspiration found within New England and beyond. We curate one of the longest running and largest independently organized TED conferences in the world. Our mission is to highlight ideas that inspire people to change their lives and communities.
