TEDxUNC is a conference for big ideas: for the dreamers, for the innovators, and for the creatives. We hope to inspire UNC and the greater Chapel Hill community to think and discuss these ideas through a TED-style conference. TEDxUNC is held every February in Memorial Hall, and we hope to see you at the next one!
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. At TEDxUNC, 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. Read more about TEDx here.
What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.
