TEDxSeattleLive 2018


On Saturday, April 14th, we came together and spent a day watching two unedited sessions from the TED Conference held that same week in Vancouver BC. The Riveter on Capitol Hill provided the roomy and comfortable open space to enjoy the TED2018 video feed, as well as connect and share conversation with others who care about the latest ideas worth spreading. Doors opened at 9am for coffee and conversation, then sessions ran from 10am until noon, and resumed at 1pm until 3pm. Snacks and a light lunch were provided.
We enjoyed…

Session 1: Doom. Gloom. Outrage. Uproar.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSeattle, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSeattle event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
