TEDxBuffalo TOMORROW October 14th Showcases New Opera, Art by Keith Harrington "The Projectionist" and MORE!

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).

About TEDxBuffalo

Since 2011, TEDxBuffalo has taken place each October at Canisius College’s Montante Cultural Center. This year, we’re expanding the format to accommodate 300 attendees (up from 100) and adding an after-party to the fun! TEDxBuffalo is free for all who attend thanks to numerous generous donations from across the city of Buffalo and is put together and hosted by a fabulous team of volunteers, who work tirelessly year-round to get all of the talent, impact and action together in one room.

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.
