TED: a non-profit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Beginning in 1984 as a conference in California, TED has grown to support world-changing ideas.
At TED, world-leading thinkers and doers are asked to speak on their experiences. Talks are then made available to all at TED.com.
TEDx: 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 TEDxStJohns, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxStJohns 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.
TEDxStJohns is the largest TEDx event in Atlantic Canada and the official TEDx city license holder for St. John’s. The event has featured speakers from a variety of industries and fields, including arts and entertainment, business, healthcare technology, human rights, and more.
