What is TED?


TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics – from science to business to global issues. TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world.



What is TEDx?


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMHK, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. At our TEDxMHK event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection through engaging experiences at the local level.


TEDxMHK is the local forum for ideas within the Manhattan community that inspire people through shared passions and the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. TEDxMHK 2017 looks to inspire and illuminate the Manhattan community with thought-provoking ideas reframing our vision of what’s possible.
