Q: What is TED?
A: TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.
Q: What is a salon?
A: A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host to increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation. In TEDx terms, a Salon is an event that, unlike the usual TED events that cover a broad range of issues, is a focused exploration of a particular subject.
Q: Where does the money 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 during its annual conference 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 salons.
Q: Do you offer refunds? Are tickets transferable?
A: No. If you cannot make the event, the cost of your ticket will be considered a charitable donation to TEDxSanAntonio.
Q: Can children attend?
A: TEDxYouth@SA is geared toward middle and high school students. Adults with paid admission can accompany their children 10 and under in to the DoSeum for free!!
Q: Is it too late to sponsor?
A: No! TEDxSanAntonio is 100% volunteer driven so we are always open to new partnerships. Please contact Sponsor@TEDxSanAntonio.com for sponsorship opporunities, or click the 'We Accept Donations' button at checkout if you'd like to just make a donation.
Q: Have you selected speakers? / How are speakers selected for salon events?
A: We publicize the opportunity to submit speaker applications on Twitter, Facebook and the website. If you have an idea for a future salon event, you can submit a proposal via TEDxSA.com/contact

When & Where
About TEDx, x=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, 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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
There have been hundreds of TEDx events worldwide; some are organized around a specific theme, such as TEDxOilSpill or TEDMed; some are regional like TEDxSanAntonio.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia, along with the TEDActive simulcast event in nearby Whistler. The annual TEDGlobal conference will be held this October in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed.
TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
