F.A.Q.

Q: What is TED, and what is TEDx?

A: TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. They make opportunities for people to share ideas, then publish the ideas online and make them free for everyone to see and share. TEDxSanAntonio is a community group organizing events under license from TED.

Q: What is a TEDx Youth event?

A: Students middle-school age and up can organize TEDx events under the mentorship of a licensed TEDx group, such as TEDxSanAntonio. Youth get the opportunity to learn how to put on a community-based event.

Q: Where do sponsorship funds go?

A: The proceeds from this salon go to TEDxSanAntonio and Fiesta for the Mind, a non-profit 501(c)3organization that brings “ideas worth spreading” to the San Antonio community through thoughtful and innovative talks and other events. We use funds for our all-volunteer organization in many ways, including but not limited to interactive exhibits, entertainment, food, scholarships, viewing parties and other events.
