From a treehouse to a Titanic replica: The best TEDx venues

From the TED Blog’s week-long celebration of TEDx:

Now 5,000+ events and 20,000+ talks strong, TEDx’s “x” has made its way to some marvelously unexpected places. From the staircase of a full-size reproduction of the Titanic to a base camp in Antarctica, TEDx venues are far from ordinary. Below, nine of our favorite venues from TEDx events past.

What would a great wonder of the world be without a TEDx? At TEDxGreatWall in 2011, TEDx’ers took over the Jinshanling section of the Chinese landmark, marking this historic landscape with ideas worth spreading.

Looking like a cross between a UFO and an amusement park ride, TEDxBrainport’s venue might have had its audience thinking “aliens” at first. Located in the tech-savvy Brainport Eindhoven region of The Netherlands, TEDxBrainport’s former science museum locale easily set the scene for visions of the future.

TEDxCuria is a TEDx in a Box event, the first in Ecuador, organized for children in Curia, a very small underprivileged coastal community.

Children heard an inspirational talk by Andres Fernandez — a six time national surf champion — on how to pursue their dreams and never stop believing they can do anything they put their mind to. This after watching a video of Derek Sivers’ talk on how to start a movement. 

The event ended with a video of Dianna Cohen’s talk on plastic pollution prevention. 

The event was held on the beach, with videos projected on a large screen that the community built through donations by Granito de Arena, a local non-profit engaged in social development in coastal areas of Ecuador through surfing.
