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 TEDxRushU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxRushU 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.
Welcome to TEDxRushU
TEDxRushU will provide a platform for the brightest minds to converge and inspire. We are committed to creating an event where participants are challenged to communicate their passions in an exciting and engaging dialogue.
Speakers will present their forward-thinking ideas and all participants will leave the conference inspired and empowered to create positive change in Chicago, IL.
TEDxRushU is currently accepting applications for any person who is interested in speaking at our 2014 April event. If you are interested in applying to be a speaker or know anyone who may be interested, please complete or pass on the application link below:
