More about TEDx:
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.
TEDxUCR was founded in 2010 by four Psychology graduate students seeking a platform for which to highlight “ideas worth spreading” born from local UCR and Riverside communities. The organization has since grown to include many graduate and undergraduate students from various departments. TEDxUCR has hosted four previous events: “Beneath the Surface” and "Invisible Influences", salon events featuring speakers and performances, “The Everyday Extraordinary”, a TEDxUCR event featuring eight speakers from around Southern California, and two TEDxUCRLive events, each streaming live TED talks from the 2012 and 2013 TED conferences in Long Beach.
