TED Circles is coming to Lancaster!

At July’s TEDSummit in Edinburgh, Scotland, TED unveiled a new initiative called TED Circles. The premise of TED Circles will be revealed closer to September. TED will run a pilot program for 3 months starting in September. If all goes well, TED Circles will be launched worldwide in January. TED is launching this pilot program in 40 countries and selected only 150 TEDx organizers worldwide to test this program in their hometowns. We are THRILLED to announce that TEDxLancaster was chosen as one of the 150!! Stay tuned for details!
