At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity
    As part of the American Art Therapy Association (AATA) conference in Cleveland, AATA members took part in a service project benefiting Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity. They created a large-scale mural themed "What Makes a House a Home?" for the Restore at Habitat's new Cleveland headquarters. More than 60 18-inch square canvases were sent from art therapists around the country. On November 19, art therapy volunteers worked all day to assemble the works on six giant boards that now hang along the "check-out" wall at the ReStore. Click here for pictures.
    "We were both blessed and overwhelmed by the beauty of the project," said Jeffrey Bowen, Executive Director of Cleveland Habitat. In addition to the mural project, members of the Buckeye [Ohio] Art Therapy Association donated 100 art supply kits for the children of Habitat Partner Families.
