About TEDxLA
TEDxLA will be an event where the village in which it is held will play a central role in how we have global impact. Where the action we take will be as important as the ideas we share.

Imagine if we could allow each speaker and performer to bring people together and allow them to visualize an “imagined future”. How can we offer everyone the opportunity to touch and feel an idea? Imagine we could transform the previous impossible into possibility by one idea.

TEDxLA 2016 theme is Imagine

We welcome you to join a gathering of the minds as we explore how we imagine our collective future.

Imagine a day when the City of Angels acts like a city of angels. Where hungry minds collaborate, where entertainment, science, arts, innovation, inclusiveness, freedom, and the spirit of being oneself becomes like a tradition that always existed.

Join us for this exclusive event. Check out from the day-to-day routine and go on an intellectual journey filled with brilliant speakers, captivating performances, amazing new technology, thought-provoking ideas, and an opportunity to be part of the conversation that will define our future.
