San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
As a special 'perk' to reward our volunteers, we have a special license to screen the TED2015 Conference in real time, as it happens live in Vancouver! That's right, you can come to our plush screening room and watch the first full day of the $8500 conference, for free!
Join us if you were a volunteer last year, or if you would like to be a volunteer this year!
During the breaks between sessions, we will have our first planning meetings for organizing our own TEDxFultonStreet 2015, for which ticketing will begin a few days later.
Please only take tickets for sessions you will definitely attend.
You are welcome to join us for the entire day, or for just a small part... but seating is limited, so please don't take a slot unless you're going to use it. Other people are eager!
Between sessions, we'll have a bit of social time. Anyone hungry can venture into the neighborhood; there are a few delis nearby. (Sorry, no catering since this event is free...)
VOLUNTEER MEETING (4:00pm-5:00pm)
This time is reserved for everyone who is on our team (and anyone who would like to join our team) to meet one another and be photographed for the 'Team' page on our website. Anyone who is new to the TEDxFultonStreet community can meet our various team leaders and explore the best matches for skills and contributions.
REMINDER/WARNING about Session 4:
The evening session ("Session 4") may have a scheduling conflict from "WeWork Soho West", where our screening room is located. There is a chance we may only be able to screen part of this session.
Please do not book Session 4 as your only participation, because it might get cut short.
When & Where
About TEDxx = 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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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. Started as a conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives.
At a TED conference, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less. TED speakers have included Roger Ebert, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Brian Greene, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Three major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Vancouver, Canada, simultaneous with TEDActive, in Whistler, BC; and the TEDGlobal Conference takes place each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
On TED.com, talks from TED conferences are shared with the world for free as TED Talks videos. A new TED Talk is posted every weekday. Through the Open Translation Project, TED Talks are subtitled by volunteers worldwide into more than 90 languages. Through our distribution networks, TED Talks are shared on TV, radio, Netflix and many websites.
The TEDx initiative grants free licenses to people around the world to organize TED-style events in their communities with TED Talks and live speakers. More than 5,000 TEDx events have been held, and selected talks from these events are also turned into TED Talks videos.
The annual TED Prize grants $1 million to an exceptional individual with a wish to change the world. The TED Fellows program helps world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities. TED-Ed creates short video lessons by pairing master teachers with animators, for use in classroom instruction or independent learning.
