On August 24, 2016, TEDxRiNo is excited to present its second live event, Origins, at EXDO Event Center. The theme–rooted in the ideals and history of the RiNo neighborhood of Denver–will share ideas and stories about innovation, new ideas, and pioneers. We are current accepting speaker submissions and volunteer applications.
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 TEDxRiNo, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxRiNo event, TEDTalks video and 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.
Denver's River North Art District (RiNo) joined the global TED community with the launch of TEDxRiNo in 2015. RiNo is a visionary community that has rapidly transformed itself from an industrial hub to one of Denver's premiere, thriving neighborhoods while maintaining the integrity of its history. It's an inspirational model of reimagining a community. TEDxRiNo will host it's second event in the summer of 2016. The event will bring together talented speakers, thought-leaders, and performers to share ideas on a wide range of subjects - fostering learning, inspiration and wonder - to ultimately provoke conversations that matter.
