In the Spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading


TEDx is a program created by TED of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxTysons creates an opportunity for anyone with an idea, project or inspiring story to share it with the rest of the Tysons area – helping to connect, educate, inform and showcase our diverse and growing community.

At TEDx events a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos spark deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis and lack any commercial, religious or political agenda.

This is the first year that TEDxTysons has worked with Maker Faire NoVa and we are extremely pleased with our new working relationship. TEDxTysons will be helping us run the Speaker Series and providing expertise and people to help us record the event (both video and photography). TEDxTysons has also introduced us to several fascinating makers including an entire film festival (SmartPhilm Festival – films shot on smartphones) which will take place at Maker Faire NoVa in 2019. We could not be happier with our new community partner!
