Sugar Land, TX – The City of Sugar Land and the Aga Khan Council for Southwestern United States and the World Affairs Council Houston will provide a free screening of TEDxSugarLand on Oct. 8, at 7 p.m., in the Sugar Land Town Square plaza, 15958 City Walk.

TEDxSugarLand is entitled “Small Town, HUGE Ideas” and showcased innovative Texans with powerful ideas. The video-screened program on Oct. 8 will highlight several of the 16 speakers and entertainers who presented their ideas in the areas of technology, design, education, health and more at TEDxSugarLand on Aug. 27.

“Our goal is to provoke passionate discussions within the Sugar Land community,” said Joshua M. Evans, TEDxSugarLand curator and host. “We are trying to look at it as a way to open peoples’ minds, not just pour knowledge into them. Sugar Land truly is the perfect location to bring together new ideas, diverse cultures, and intriguing discussions.”

Additional details and speaker information can be found at www.tedxsugarland.org.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, “ideas worth spreading.” It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community. The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local experiences.
