The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia, along with the TEDActive simulcast event in nearby Whistler. The annual TEDGlobal conference will be held this October in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

“Without our centers, life is meaningless but without our edges life is boring.”
Another way – consider geographic, social, interpersonal, intellectual, architectural, economic, artistic, musical centers — each of these have extreme edges, places of growth and discomfort. We want to explore the centers and the edges spread across all topics and ideas. With this theme, TEDxDurham aims to explore the intersection of one person, community, or idea’s edge with the center of another.
