Started in 2009, TEDx supports independent organizers who want to create events to share ideas in communities worldwide, according to ted.com. It is the independent, do-it-yourself version of TED, which began in 1984 with conferences covering technology, entertainment and design.
TEDx Innovation Drive will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 7, in the Dublin Integrated Education Center at Ohio University’s Dublin Medical campus. Although the event is by invitation-only, it will be available online both live and after the event.
The event was funded through a $3,500 grant from the Dublin Foundation, as well as money from individual donors.
