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 TEDxConcordiaUPortland, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxConcordiaUPortland event, TEDTalks 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.
What is TEDxConcordiaUPortland?
It’s an independently organized and licensed offshoot of TED, you know, the huge speaking event with “ideas worth spreading”. The event where they provide a way for us to hear great ideas from thinkers who have an idea that is changing the world. The one where amazing individuals are giving an 18-minute or less “talk of a lifetime”.
We hold a big annual event in the spring of each year with approximately 15-18 live speakers and performers for 700 attendees and TEDx Adventures throughout the year for more intimate, hands-on opportunities to interact with our speakers and their ideas worth spreading.
