What is TEDx?
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 TEDxJacksonville, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxJacksonville event, TED Talks 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.
TEDxJacksonville is partnering with the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens to present a series of Salons on select Tuesdays this summer. Each Salon will feature a series of impactful, thought-provoking talks from past TEDxJacksonville conferences, followed by discussion sessions with local experts, including, in some instances, the original TEDxJacksonville speakers. The Salons are free, but registration is required. Each session will be held at the Cummer and will begin at 6 p.m.
