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 in a small group. 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.)

TEDxWalledCity was created 5 years ago with the aim of bringing “ideas worth spreading” to the world. We curate, train and present (using TED methodology) some of the best ideas through inventors, change makers and disruptors that could change the world in unimaginable ways. Our aim in the end is to have an impact on the issues of the day.
