What is TED?
Adapting the mission of spreading ideas; the nonprofit organization TED started out 28 years ago as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences: the TED Conference in “Long Beach and Palm Springs” each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh UK each summer which bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or even less.
TED’s world includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
What is TEDx?
TEDx is a TED-like program organized independently all round the world and created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading". The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. The TED team provides guidance to the organizers but the execution is merely independent.
What is TEDxMa’an?
TEDxMa’an is organized by a passionate Jordanian who -as TED team- believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world.
This privately organized TED event will take place in Ma’an at Al-Hussein Bin Talal University on June 23rd, 2012, and will adapt the theme of “Creativity in remote areas in Jordan, Ma’an as an Example”.
This full day event will contain inspirational, attractive, talentful, thoughtful, and life-story talks by outstanding successful, talented, innovators, doers, and entrepreneur people from Ma’an and other remote areas of Jordan. We at TEDxMa’an offer a dais to carefully chosen speakers to speak about their success stories, their talents, their thought about the future of Ma’an, and their entrepreneurship and pioneer lives, along with heart to heart performings and a creative gallery.
