TEDxPearlStreet is a nonprofit serving Washington, DC since 2019.
TEDxPearlStreet is made possible by the work and effort of the broader community: inspiring attendees, the efforts of thousands of hours from a large, committed team, deep involvement from partners and sponsors, and a wealth of brilliant innovators in Washington, DC who donate their time, energy, and talents to contribute to "Ideas Worth Spreading."
Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to give the talk of their lives. These talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.
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. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
