Pushing Through The Pavement!

February 6, 2016 - Paonia, CO - Paradise Theatre

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Our event is called TEDxPaonia, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPaonia event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.


TEDxPaonia showcases innovative Coloradans who each give the ‘talk of their life’ around the power of ideas.

Our theme:

Pushing Through The Pavement!

Our mission statement:

Celebrate Paonia as a thought hub that ignites creativity, curiosity, and connection.

What Is TED?

TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. They believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, they’re building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
