About TEDxDayton

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to listen to exciting speakers. TEDxDayton is a collaboration of ideas designed to spark deep discussion and connection among speakers and attendees who join us at our events.

The speakers chosen will carefully prepare their talks, demonstrations and performances around a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter. A diversity of topics will be discussed to cover a multitude of issues.

TEDxDayton is organized by local volunteers who gather talented storytellers to inspire attendees of these events and others around the world.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual gathering in Vancouver, Canada, TEDWomen and TEDGlobal conferences, and thousands of independently organized TEDx events around the world, then made available, free, on TED.com and other channels.

TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities; and the educational initiative TED-Ed.
