2021 Theme:
Origins & Evolution

All ideas have a starting point but what happens when we allow ourselves to be satisfied with the notion that ideas have an endpoint as well? Can ideas evolve and reimagine their original purpose? Our 3rd annual TEDxFarmingdale event will showcase ideas that have evolved from their previous iterations and aspire to innovate while honoring their origin foundations.

x = independently organized event

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.

What happens 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.

Ideas worth spreading

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

The Speakers

Ideas worth spreading from speakers worth listening to
