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. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities across the world with the sole purpose of providing an environment for thought provoking discussions to take place. Whilst there have been some TEDx events across Northern Ireland, it has never been to Derry/ Londonderry. IMAGINE CHANGE will change that. This is a historic event for the walled city. A first, but definitely not the last.
TEDxDerryLondonderry comprises of a group of open minded volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, who share a passion for the ethos of TED, which is ideas worth spreading. The organiser, Gary Doherty, a Derry man, fought long and hard to bring TEDx to Derry/ Londonderry. When asked, “Why”, he responded by simply saying, “I love TED and everything it stands for. Personal and professional success is built on collaboration and being open to change. We can learn so much from other people.”
