has been granted a license to showcase a selection of the world famous TED
TED is a
non-profit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of
short, powerful talks. The first TED conference was in 1984 as a conference
with a focus on Technology, Entertainment and Design. TED talks now cover many
topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100
languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in
communities around the world. With TEDxRotoruaLibraryLive, we are excited to
share the latest ideas from TED.com with the Rotorua community.
Each year the
TED.com conference is held in a different North American city with this year’s
event being held in Vancouver from 15-19 April. A selection of the TED.com
talks will then be shown our Community Pride Screen hot of the press on Saturday
20 and Sunday 21 April.
Our exciting event is called TEDxRotoruaLibraryLive. A programme of
talks will be available to us soon and we look forward to sharing a selection
of the best with you. More information will be available in our April
newsletter as well as here on our website.
