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 TEDxKeene, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxKeene 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.
Similar to most other TEDx themes, "A Tipping Point" is intended to resonate for audience members in multiple ways. Whether the theme reminds you of Malcolm Gladwell's book about small actions resulting in big effects, or you simply think of a life changing realization, we want you to stop and think about tipping points, or the lack thereof, in your life and community.
“The name given to that one dramatic moment in an epidemic when everything can change all at once is the tipping point.”
- Malcolm Gladwell
