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 TEDxDeadSea, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxDeadSea event, TEDTalks 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.

What you’ll find at every TEDx event:

The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all TEDx events have several features in common.

- TED’s celebrated format: A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances (live, or just TEDTalks videos from TED.com) on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder — and to provoke conversations that matter

- TEDTalks videos: A minimum of two pre-recorded talks from the acclaimed TEDTalks video series (these talks are available free on TED.com)

- Bias-free programming: Lack of any commercial, religious or political agenda

What is TEDxDeadSea?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDxDeadSea is proud to present our first event, “Education, Creativity & Entrepreneurship”, a full-day of inspirational and stimulating talks from leading entrepreneurs, creative minds as well as champions of Education and Empowerment of Women, from Jordan, the Middle East and the rest of the world.

TEDxDeadSea is taking place at the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar at the Dead Sea in Jordan on April 30th, 2011.
