By Angela Lewis
Following the huge success of the last three editions of TEDxSanMigueldeAllende, on August 2 TEDxSanMigueldeAllende 2013 will be held at the Cine los Aldama under the theme “Future = Now.” It’s all about ideas worth spreading…
TEDxSanMigueldeAllende is a social and cultural initiative, where all visitors will witness the ideas shaping our future dreams, the ideas worth spreading. “Future = Now,” the theme of 2013, reflects the desire to show a world that honors the wisdom of the past and at the same time manages to establish a path to the future, inspiring the best in wit and human spirit.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events bringing people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDx events utilize TEDTalks video and live speakers to spark deep discussion and group connection. Our event is called TEDxSanMigueldeAllende, where x equals an independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
TED is an annual event where some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. “TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design — three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. And in fact, the event is broader still, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline. Attendees have called it “the ultimate brain spa” and “a four-day journey into the future.” The diverse audience — CEOs, scientists, creatives, philanthropists — is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono.
