TED2017 will explore the deepest scientific and psychological insights, the latest medical advances, and thrilling new inventions (all mixed with a dose of ancient wisdom), and will ask questions about our present and future selves. The program will feature a succession of extraordinary speakers - risk-takers, visionaries, celebrities, and an emerging generation of idea creators - who will deliver the “talk of their lives” in TED’s world-famous TED Talk format.

Through the TED Cinema Experience series, you will have unprecedented access to the TED experience, giving you the opportunity to have your curiosity sparked, mind opened, and world shifted – together with other TED fans through three community viewing events on cinema screens.
