What is TEDx?

The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.

At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.


The TEDx Program in Santa Monica is those who wish to join a community and make a difference.

TEDxSantaMonica Curators: John Bates, Grant Graves, Nataly Carranza and Adrian Roup:

We are volunteers who work passionately to bring TED-like experiences to the Santa Monica community. We are creating a series of salon events where we will watch inspring, fascinating TED talks, discuss them and create an ongoing community of people who care. In the spirit of TED, we aim to use local resources (both people, services and products) when creating our events. We prefer topics that are relevant to Santa Monica, we provide catering from Santa Monica restaurants and utilize services of Santa Monica businesses whenever possible. We encourage guests to view themselves as participants rather than audience members, and to partake in the effort to unify, support and promote the community through the vehicle of TED.

Ideas worth sharing… in Santa Monica.
