2018 TEDxPasadena: Transform

  • Huntington library (map)

TED is an acronym for technology, entertainment and design and TEDxPasadena is a local, self-organized, non-profit TED event, that brings people together to share a TED-like experience.

This conference gathers community together for a day of discourse over TEDTalk videos and live speakers. The goal is to spark deep discussion and connection.

Our community has grown to over 5,000 people and more than 1,500 have attended our annual conferences, but more than 2 million curious minds have viewed our 53 TEDx Talks on YouTube!

After building Momentum (2015), and realizing It’s About Time (2016) to Rise (2017), we leveraged an exceptional lineup of speakers who will inspire us to TRANSFORM (2018)!

Sublime joy, wrenching tragedy, an enlightening conversation – these can all transform. And so do words and stories. This year’s event celebrates our ability to transform...from subtle internal shifts to seismic quantifiable ones. We hope you'll join us!

Visit for a list of the 2018 TRANSFORM speakers as well as TED Talk videos from TEDxPasadena 2017, 2016 and 2015.
