Hampton Roads is full of talent, culture, and mixtures of ideas and perspectives. Within the "seven cities" live residents from around the globe, largely due to the transient nature of the connection with the military. To connect these ideas, to create progress in the growth of the area is essential for the seven cities - and tapping into the minds of the creative, innovative and makers, as well as hearing perspectives from the new, and the old will bring a collective voice to what is truly needed in Hampton Roads ... relevant progress.
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 TEDxHamptonRoads, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxHamptonRoads event, TEDTalks 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.
