x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created TEDx which is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDx events bring together thinkers, innovators and artists in one assembly, with the intention of promoting “Ideas Worth Spreading.”

Innovation in collaboration

We are proud that our community supports a coordinated offering of three local TEDx events.  As co-founder Tony Karakashian once said, “We have multiple events because Rochester has many ideas worth spreading in any given year."
