TEDxTemecula 2018 Conference is all about 'absurdity'


Last updated 5/17/2018 at 9:24am

TEMECULA – TEDxTemecula, an independently organized TEDx event, announced this year’s annual conference returns to the Old Town Temecula Community Theater, Sept. 29. For the seventh consecutive year, the conference brings together the brightest minds of the community for a one-day conference to share ideas on health, education, technology, the arts and more. 

“The speakers were diverse, authentic, inspiring and worthy of our attention,” an attendee from last year’s event said.

This year’s theme for the conference invites attendees to look at these issues through a unique lens: “Absurdity.”

“When we explore our world, a lot of what we find could be considered absurd,” organizer Jim McLaughlin said. “This year, we’re inviting our community to seek out the absurdity around us and see what we can learn, together.”

The TEDxTemecula mission is to bring together the valley’s brightest thinkers, performers and visionaries to explore what’s possible in the community and beyond.

Another TEDxTemecula attendee said, “I was blown away by the local inspiration here in my own community.”

Last year, seven local speakers presented thought-provoking talks to a full house at the Old Town Temecula Community Theater.

“Each year, we aim to create an unforgettable event where the audience can experience, discover, explore and celebrate the exciting innovation happening in our backyard,” McLaughlin said.

This event is not well-suited for children under the age of 12. To learn more about the TEDxTemecula event, participate and see past talks, visit
