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 TEDxUIUC, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUIUC 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.
During the event, we will have time for guests to discuss amongst themselves the ideas and topics brought up in the talks. We encourage everyone to participate, get involved, and learn more from your peers!
We have a great group of speakers ready to share their knowledge and perspectives with you this year! Check them out!
