TEDxHoboken “Infinite Horizons” is Announced for June 2013

The TEDxHoboken Team Kicks off “Ideas Worth Spreading” with a TEDGlobal Simulcast at Mission50

TEDxHoboken will take place in June of 2013 at The Babbio Center at Stevens Institute of Technology. The independently organized event, licensed by TED, will feature TEDTalks videos, original speakers, music and dance. TEDxHoboken will be curated by Elizabeth Barry and a newly formed idea-seeking team.

TEDxHoboken was created by a group of enthusiastic dreamers and inspired enthusiasts that believe in the power of ideas, knowledge, hope, breakthroughs and a better future. Their goal is to draw a number of artists, entrepreneurs, scientists and enlightened souls to the Hoboken area. “Infinite Horizons” is the theme chosen because when you look at the breathtaking view from Hoboken, you can conjure up an infinity of ideas for your life. Visit TEDxHoboken.com to be first to know about upcoming mixers and applications for the 2013 event.

“Hoboken is a vibrant city full of creative talent, and I’m very excited that TEDxHoboken will offer an opportunity to share ideas and for participants to learn from each other”, added Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

To kick off their newly formed committee, the TEDxHoboken team will host a TEDGlobal simulcast on Thursday, June 28th. Join in on the action for free at Mission50 from 9am through 6pm. Coffee, snacks and water will be provided by Anthony Davids Catering. To register, click here: tedxhobokentedglobal.eventbrite.com. RSVP Deadline for the TEDGlobal Simulcast is Monday, June 25th.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Long Beach, California, along with the TEDActive simulcast in Palm Springs; the annual TEDGlobal conference is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, the recently launched TED-Ed platform for students and educators, the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide, and TEDBooks, short e-books by speakers that elaborate on a single idea originally presented on TED’s stage. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
