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 TEDxTacoma, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTacoma event, TED Talks 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 is TEDx Tacoma?
TEDxTacoma will bring together local military families and civilians; bridging the gap between these two communities and discussing the topic of transitions. Whether military or civilian, man or woman, Hilltop or North End, how can we better orient ourselves and our neighbors in our communities, thinking, and experiences? From graduating school to becoming a parent to getting out of the military or beginning a new career path, transitions occur in all phases of life. Join us as we learn from members of our community about handling those transitions.
