Join us at an advance screening of select talks from the TED2023 Conference POSSIBILITY before they’re released to the general public. See some of the year’s most memorable speakers and most compelling ideas, in a format that takes you inside the theater to experience the talks as they unfold.

The event will take place at The Jessie Ball duPont Center on Wednesday, May 3, where we’ll be broadcasting the latest talks from this year’s TED2023 Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. Secure your tickets here.

Thanks to The Jessie Ball DuPont Center for serving as our event sponsor and host venue.

A preview of the conference from TED:
Much of today’s public conversation is eaten up by zero-sum battles between divided groups. But the world doesn’t have to be zero-sum. TED2023 will explore together a strange and beautiful space called the adjacent possible. We’ll be guided there by dreamers, inventors and creatives. Innovators, entrepreneurs and builders. Explorers and change-makers. Visionary thinkers and doers from every field of human endeavor.

They use the power of imagination to make the world bigger, better, more thrilling, more hopeful. And the incredible thing is … their visions may inspire us to actually make that possible world real. At a time of great challenges, this is the antidote we need. Come dream with us!

During this broadcast, we will show talks from the incredible opening session of TED2023: POSSIBILITY.

Admission is $12 per person, and includes beer, wine and other beverages. Food will not be available for purchase, but because this is the evening of First Wednesday Art Walk, restaurants and food vendors near The Jessie Ball duPont Center will be open. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Enjoy First Wednesday Art Walk before or after the event:

With 30 to 40 galleries, museums, cultural venues, restaurants, bars and businesses participating each month and dozens of artists in the open-air James Weldon Johnson Park, Art Walk is the ultimate opportunity to savor and support Jacksonville’s deep pool of creative talent.
