TEDxKenmoreSquare Newsroom - Profile and News Archive
The inaugural theme of TEDxKenmoreSquare (TEDx KenmoreSquare), held in Boston, Mass., is Forging the Future. By providing a platform for speakers and by bringing together a dynamic group of thinkers and doers, the organizers intend to accomplish their mission of actively forging the future.
Kenmore Square is a particularly unique neighborhood of Boston. Its heart is marked by the intersection of two major city thoroughfares, Beacon Street and Commonwealth Avenue. Previously a swampy, desolate corner of Boston where the Charles River fed into the marshy Back Bay, Kenmore Square is now a destination in and of itself.
Starting at the turn of the century, it has undergone a dramatic renovation and is now a mini-hub within the Hub. The diversity of businesses, universities, museums, and sports facilities in the area mirrors the diversity of disciplines and ideas as represented by TED. It is this richness that TEDxKenmoreSquare will celebrate and champion.
TEDx conferences are local, self-organized entities where x= an independently organized TED event. TEDx allows local communities to experience a TED-like event by bringing people and organizations together to promote ‘ideas worth spreading.’ In the spirit of TED, these events celebrate the vision of making great ideas accessible.
