TEDx Temecula, an independently organized TED event, is going virtual this year. TEDx Temecula announced they would be hosting online watch parties instead of its annual live event due to COVID-19, according to a news release.
Out of hundreds of applicants, six speakers were chosen, and their talks will be debuted over the course of several weeks in free, online events. Those who attend will also be invited to talk further about the ideas presented with the host and others.
Here’s the lineup, starting in November: Doyin Richards, a bestselling author and an activist for mental health and healthy masculinity, spoke Nov. 17; Veronica Kirin, an anthropologist, author and entrepreneur, will speak Dec. 1; Heather Conklin, a political scientist and science communicator, Dec. 8; Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, CEO of Valens Global, an international strategy and securities company Dec. 15, Dan Pettus, a retired professional photographer, Jan. 5, and Dr. Ernst von Schwarz, board-certified internist, cardiologist and heart transplant cardiologist, Jan. 12.
