Welcome to TEDxAmericanRiviera 2012! The Unthinkable theme offers a wide range of topics, issues and areas to explore. The day will span from the dark, chilling side of unimaginable events that make way for life lessons, to the bright, thought-provoking side of life-altering ideas explored for the first time.
Our use of the spiral staircase as a symbolic image represents to us the ups and downs in life, the circular nature of everything we do and the unknown above and below us. The bubbles and mist coming from the deep center of the staircase represent ideas coming forth from the center of the universe.
Here’s a list of our 2012 speakers so far. More speakers are being added daily, so be sure to check back regularly!
The Unthinkable - 11.11.12
What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Our event is called TEDxAmericanRiviera, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxAmericanRiviera event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
