tedxThe Event

The Berkshire Innovation Center is honored to be organizing and hosting TEDx Berkshires.  We will be converting our main event space into an originally designed and outfitted TEDx studio set.  We envision TEDx Berkshires to be a fun and intimate event of people coming together to hear from terrific speakers.

We hope to see you at TEDx Berkshires 2023!

When we're motivated to make a difference and we band together with leaders in the arts, technology, culture, academia, and business, it is powerful and exciting and impacts our community. We have existential problems that need solutions - and fast! The good news is that innovation in 2023 is running full throttle. With more open access, there is a steady flow of new ideas that create value and solve problems from and for a more diverse ecosystem. We will face the big challenges ahead with ideas and solutions that are happening today.

​Don't despair, solutions are everywhere! They're in our core, those ideas that spark meaningful change and action for good. We the people, we make the difference. The evolution of technology, science, storytelling, art, sports, and academia is constant, and we are on the doorstep of a generational set of possibilities.

​Join us at TEDx Berkshires to learn about the people, the solutions, and the wisdom that is changing our world.
