Welcome to TEDxSantaCruz

Santa Cruz is a place where ideas incubate, collide, and ignite. It is this pulsing of the ideas, creativity, and diversity of Santa Cruz County that forms the heart of TEDxSantaCruz. Our fourth all-day live event TEDxSantaCruz 2015 RADICAL COLLABORATION was a rousing success that happened Friday, April 24, 2015, to a sold-out and filled to the brim Rio Theatre.

Please check back in a few weeks to see the videos of our 23 speakers and performers who explored Radical Collaboration from nearly every angle, from civic engagement to climate change, from space exploration to self-exploration.

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 TEDxSantaCruz, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSantaCruz 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.
