What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxVanderbiltUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxVanderbiltUniversity event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Interested in speaking at our next TEDxVanderbiltUniversity event?

We look forward to hearing your “ideas worth spreading”. If you need a sounding board to see if your ideas could be developed into a TEDxVandy talk, please reach out using the email below and we’d love to chat with you.
