TEDxCoconutGrove sets forth to engage our community in discussions of ideas, to expand perspectives and to make a philanthropic impact. This event is independently organized under license from TED, a non-profit organization that conducts an annual international conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. In the spirit of ideas worth sharing, TED has created a program called TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At this TEDxCoconutGrove event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

TEDxCoconutGrove will host its conference at The Ransom Everglades School on Friday, February 5, 2016, from 2 to 7 p.m., in the Lewis Family Auditorium, 3575 Main Highway, Coconut Grove. The general public is invited. Tickets are $50 for adults and $10 for students and are available online.
