“To engage with the future, to find elusive audiences, to test ideas and to create tangible relationships. Becoming a TEDx partner means you share in our mission of spreading ideas that can change the world, join our community of thought leaders, and benefit from individually tailored sponsorship”
Our 2018 Theme
“Yes and…” is a guiding principle of Improv that promotes inclusion. The Yes explains the situation, while the And allows the listener to add their own experience to the talk, and take action.
“We don’t believe we have the luxury of admiring the problems any longer.”
David Scott Mann, TEDxSantaBarbara, 2016

TEDxSantaBarbara by the Numbers
The TEDxSantaBarbara Audience at a glance
The TEDxSantaBarbara audience is quite impressive. Just as varied as the program and speakers, individuals from diverse backgrounds come together to share the TEDxSantaBarbara experience.
TEDx is about innovation, the future, and keeping people in dialogue. When I think about what a community foundation is doing, more than anything else, is helping citizens identify the most important factors that will lead to the best collective future.
