TEDxConstitutionDrive 2014 (Menlo Park, CA)
Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
Menlo Park, CA
In the spirit of "ideas worth spreading," TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxConstitutionDrive, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxConstitutionDrive, 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.
The themes of previous years have been TRUST , IDENTITY , and TIME , respectively. Learn about previous years' events at:
We are excited to announce the theme of this year's TEDxConstitutionDrive:
Where the Wild Things Are
We will explore the boundaries of the world in which we live -- exposing different interpretations of what it means to be wild and raw, as well as how wildness comes to be. From native food growing in the hillsides of California, to the sensual demands of the flesh, to the wild west of startup and hacker culture in Silicon Valley. This year's speakers will take us on a journey of mind and heart, taste and touch, and help us remember how to break the patterns of our lives.
