TEDxFSCJ is a convener of conversations.
Our mission is to place before the community the most engaging ideas possible and to help our attendees, partners and volunteers grow both personally and professionally.
Each year, we hold our annual conference at Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ). In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” our conference features speakers from across multiple disciplines who embody a diversity of knowledge, perspective, and voice.
We also host a series of informal salons each year that focus on the ideas that animate and inspire the people of Northeast Florida—from cutting-edge developments in space exploration and digital technology to human rights, health care, and the visual arts—to name but a few of the topics we’ve tackled.
Join us as we explore the uncharted—together.
ABOUT TEDx, X = INDEPENDENTLY ORGANIZED EVENT
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 TEDxFSCJ, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFSCJ event, 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. Learn more about the TEDx program here.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia, along with the TEDActive simulcast event in nearby Whistler. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
