Why spend the day at TEDxSeattle? Serendipity

Serendipity is defined as the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. It’s a good description of what people experience attending an independently organized TED event like TEDxSeattle. The line-up of speakers and entertainers is curated to bring together a vast range of ideas around a central theme. This year’s theme is Changing Places. The speakers and customized audience experiences are designed to support the mission of ideas worth spreading. Join the conversation on November 18th. Here’s a look at our event last year.
