What is TED?
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design – three areas that are collectively shaping our future. TED is an annual event where the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share their passions.
What is TEDxABQ?
For six years running, TEDxABQ - the TED.com licensed conference has showcased New Mexico’s biggest ideas to sold-out audiences. Since our first event in 2009, response to our program has been overwhelming, and we have experienced exponential growth that is incredibly exciting.
This year, the event will highlight 20 remarkable homegrown ideas from New Mexico’s most passionate scientists, artists, activists, educators, healthcare advocates, and community members. TEDxABQ is about celebrating what is great about New Mexico. Created in the spirit of TED’s mission, ideas worth spreading, TEDxABQ events are designed to give New Mexico’s communities, organizations, and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through locally organized TED -like experiences.
