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 consists of a premier annual event for 2,500 guests at the Boston Opera House and an intimate salon series for 250 guests at WBUR CitySpace, which collectively showcase the remarkable innovation, creativity, and inspiration found within the region and beyond. We produce one of the largest independently organized TED events in the world. Our mission is to highlight ideas that inspire people to change their lives and communities.
