TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. Much like the TED conference, TEDxDuke is a program that draws some of Duke University’s and Durham’s most curious, creative, and progressive thinkers together for intellectual discussion. The only difference—it’s entirely student-run! The event is inspired by the visionaries that come to share their unique stories and valuable perspectives. It serves as a unique platform to establish positive dialogue, create unexpected connections, and inspire powerful momentum.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
We are pleased to announce that our theme for the 2018 event is Righting Histories: Writing Futures. The broad theme allows speakers to describe their meaningful experiences in understanding the past, living the present, and exploring the future.
