What we do ... PLAY VIDEO



TEDxJacksonville aims to open minds with inspired ideas. We’re a group of volunteers who are licensed by TED to independently organize TED-like events in Jacksonville, Florida. Each year, in the spirit of TED’s mission, Ideas Worth Spreading, we host several TED Talk viewing salons centered around varying themes relevant to our community; we bring the global TED Conference to a local venue by simulcast or livestream; and we produce a live, day-long, 700-person conference in Jacksonville where a diverse roster of speakers are recorded giving the Talk of their lives for submission to TED.com. Why do we do this? Because we believe our city’s greatest assets are the ideas and dreams of its citizenry, and we want to be the platform that gives those ideas and dreams a voice.
