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 TEDxYouth@TKA, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxYouth@TKA, TEDTalks videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in our audience. TED provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that are idea-focused, and cover a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.
All TEDx events present multiple issues and a diversity of voices from many disciplines. After all, what’s the fun without a little variety?
A TEDx event is organized by volunteers from the local community, and just like TED events, it lacks any commercial, religious or political agenda. Its goal is to spark conversation, connection and community.
We are excited that you are interested in our upcoming 1st event, TEDxYouth@TKA, an independently organized TED event on March 15, 2020. If you are interested in applying to speak at our event, this document will outline some of the details of the event, speaking process, and provide a link to the application form.
