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)

  1. Good grief this chap is so nieve. Iv'e spent over 40yrs in the art business, these days I would not touch it with a barge pole. It's got more fiddles going than a Vivaldi allegro and it's being kept "alive" artificially. Just follow the money. The real business is in the auction houses not the gallery systems and their rip off 50%-ers!
