Presented by The Vets - Veterans Memorial Auditorium at The Vets - Veterans Memorial Auditorium

September 30, 2017

TEDxProvidence is now in its 6th year. From its inception TEDxProvidence has been a platform for community conversation, connection, creative storytelling, and the performing arts. Since 2012, our volunteer organizing committee has brought together more than 60 speakers and 2,800 audience members to hear “Ideas Worth Spreading” from a diverse cross section of our state. We have published 55 videos from our events, available to view by the public for free online. To date, we have a collective 1.4 Million views (and growing) from those videos!

TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, selforganize events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

In 2017, our selected themes are “Past, Present, and Future,” designed to ground us in our unique community history and identity amidst a rapidly changing social and political landscape. It is also intentionally broad to speak to a diverse array of speakers, ages, disciplines, and backgrounds – from youth to food to performing arts and beyond!
