TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to "Ideas Worth Spreading", which started as a conference to bring together people from three worlds -- technology, entertainment and design. Today, TED has expanded to include two annual conference - the TED Conference and the TEDGlobal conference - as well as the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
TEDx is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like events at the local level. TEDx events feature TEDTalks videos and live presenters and are fully planned and coordinated independently and on a community-by-community basis.
TEDxDumbo will feature an exciting lineup of live speakers and prerecorded TED Talks, as well as a series of Action Pitches that will give 3 projects the opportunity to share their story and gather support from the TEDxDumbo community and gather support.
We look forward to supporting this great event and helping TEDx fans in the local community and around the world to take part!
