A Unique Event Coming Soon
July 2016, Sarasota, FL – The next opportunity to attend a TEDxSarasota full-day event is coming up. We’d love for you to join us!!
We’re going on a Technicolor Journey, sharing an experience like no other.
The event takes place on October 6th, from 9:00am-6:00 pm. This year we’ll be at the Venice Theater, where we can come together to hear from 10 speakers on various topics, watch 10 TED Talk videos and enjoy the excitement and ideas generated by our audience. Think of a colorful party of sorts where you can have some learn while having fun, and meet new interesting people exchanging thoughts that can alter the way you see your world.
This is a public event, great for families, friends, students and colleagues to share, so bring a few of your favorite peeps with you!
TEDxSarasota will present 3 sessions, provide breakfast and lunch and invite you to a social ‘party’ after the day of talks wraps up.
Come along as we dive into topics from Autism to Dance to Emotional Intelligence. Find out more on our site at: TEDxSarasota.com.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; the annual million-dollar TED Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a “wish,” or idea, to create change in the world; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
