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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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.

The Garden
The South Central Farm was a 14-acre community garden in one of the country’s most blighted neighborhoods. Created as a form of healing after the Los Angeles uprising in 1992, the urban oasis was leveled by its landlord in 2006. The Garden follows the farmers who organized, fought back, and demanded answers. The Oscar-nominated film is about greed, power, racial discord, and the importance of grassroots activism. (2008, dir. Scott Hamilton Kennedy, 80 min.)

“Oracle tackle the effects of organizational frameworks on global events and private individuals. Some works in the installation symbolize marketplace machinations, both official and unofficial, while others are meditations on games, surveillance, vast data sets, mathematical and biological patterns, and even the logic of art itself. Just under the surface of the works in Oracle is an air of anxiety, as if individuals’ freedoms within these manmade phenomena are illusory or beyond reach.”
