In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx, which brings local, self-organized events that enable communities to share a TED-like experience. TEDxNewport, where x = independently organized TED event, is produced by a group of inspired locals who have curated a program of TEDTalks videos and live speakers to spark deep discussion and connection right here in Newport. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including TEDxNewport, are self-organized.
This is the second TEDx event for Newport, RI. TEDxNewport explores the trends felt by locals and visitors from all over the world. Newport has always received plenty of attention for its storied history, its lively guests, its unrivaled sunsets and its natural beauty. However, it’s also a place of great innovation, spirited entrepreneurship, and ceaseless creativity. This year’s theme, CAPSIZED, promises ideas that embody the resilience and diversity that make the City by the Sea a beacon of hope when the tide changes.
Doors open at 10:30. Program runs from 11:00 to 5:00. Please join us immediately following the event for a cocktail party in the JPT lobby from 5:00 to 7:00
Tickets are non-transferable and must be used for entry, exit, and re-entry. Your ticket will serve as your all-day pass to the sessions. Must be presented if you leave the venue and for re-entry. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket for entry.
