In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPerth, where x = independently organised TED event. At TEDxPerth, live speakers combine with short films and performances to spark discussion and connection in our community. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised. TED and TEDxPerth are not-for-profit.
