Organizers recently announced the full speaker line-up for TEDxIndianapolis 2013. In total, 22 speakers’ names were revealed, including 10 national speakers and the Los Angeles-based emcee. The speakers will bring both local and international perspectives on innovation across disciplines to TEDxIndianapolis 2013, to be held October 22, 2013, at Hilbert Circle Theatre in downtown Indianapolis.

“We purposefully selected speakers who reflected the Mix It Up theme of the event,” said Jim Walker, executive director of Big Car and the TEDxIndianapolis organizer. “These speakers offer distinct views on literacy, healthcare, art and design, discrimination, education, refugees, invention, poverty, business and technology. These talks will offer big ideas we can apply in all disciplines and industries.”

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

About TED
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.
