TED is a nonprofit that started in 1984 as a conference on ideas pertaining to the fields of technology, entertainment, and design. TED presentations are short talks given by people with ideas to share. Today, TED hosts conferences all over the world and has created the TEDTalks video site to provide access to anyone interested in discovering influential new ideas.

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 TEDxLUC, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxLUC 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.
