TELLURIDE – The inaugural TEDxTellurideLive will simulcast one day of the world-famous TED Conference. TEDxTellurideLive will be presented free at the Michael D. Palm Theatre, 721 W. Colorado Ave., Telluride, Colorado on Wednesday, Feb. 29, 9:30 am-7:45 pm. Those wishing to attend must register at www.tedxtelluridelive.com. The event is expected to fill quickly.

“We canʼt think of a more perfect place to hold a simulcast than Telluride. Telluride is a sophisticated small town filled with intellectually curious people who thrive on dynamic ideas. Weʼre not surprised that weʼve already had to change from a smaller venue to a larger venue because of the flurry of registrations,” said event organizer Katrine Formby about why she and her husband Bill decided to become involved in TEDxTellurideLive.

TEDʼs media initiatives include TED.com where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.

TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

TEDxTellurideLive is an independently organized event, licensed by TED. TEDxLive events allow communities around the world to simulcast one day of the Long Beach Conference. The theme of this year’s TED Conference is “Full Spectrum.” TEDxTellurideLive is an independently organized event, licensed by TED.
