TEDxDilworthPark 2024

event flyer

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. TEDxDilworthPark is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of TEDxDilworthPark must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
