TEDxBerkeley will take place inside Zellerbach Hall, the premiere performance venue for Cal Performance and the greater Berkeley community. Designed by award-winning architect Vernon DeMars, the facility has hosted world-class performances in music, dance, theater, and opera, and will serve as the perfect venue for TEDxBerkeley.
A full day’s worth of speaker presentations and live performances at UC Berkeley to create a TED-like experience. Everyone involved will be encouraged to discuss the ideas and themes that develop throughout the day. These will be documented in real time and online via aggregated social media commentary. Each presentation will be filmed using multiple cameras for editing and uploading to the official TEDx Youtube channel after the event. The best of the presentations will be submitted to TED in New York for consideration as TED Talks and potential posting to TED.com, translation into multiple languages for the fast-expanding and global TED.com community.
Attendance at TEDxBerkeley is open to anyone who wishes to attend by purchasing a ticket here. We’re seeking to bring together outstanding students, storied professors, inspiring entrepreneurs, forward thinkers, radical architects, intriguing designers, brilliant scientists, and astounding performers who make Berkeley and the Bay Area one of the most exciting and promising regions in the world.
