    About TEDxPiscataquaRiver
    TEDxPiscataquaRiver is a community-organized event where big ideas and challenges that affect our community are openly discussed.
    Our mission is to spark conversation and ignite positive community action by bringing together community representatives and showcasing new ideas from local, regional and national voices across diverse disciplines and backgrounds.
    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 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). Since 2009, more than one billion people have viewed TEDx talks worldwide.

    What is TED?

    TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference on the west coast bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader, attracting A-list attendees and speakers who want to be associated with everything the TED brand embodies. TED produces two annual conferences along with the award-winning TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
