  Say It Loud

Say It Loud

Our goal is to concentrate on lifting others up and to bring individuals together to focus on our similarities and celebrate our differences. The 2020 TEDxWVU Talks are encouraging others to Say it Loud. We want to inspire others to speak their truths, lift voices that have been silenced, and to celebrate individuals for who they are, not who we want them to be.

About Us


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 TEDxWVU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxWVU event, live speakers will be speaking 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.

Since TEDxWVU 2020 will be the third TEDx event held at West Virginia University, the audience has a set limit of 100 attendees. However, as TEDxWVU continues to thrive, our audience size will increase. Planning and preparation for this inaugural event started in May 2019. We hope that TEDxWVU will inspire attendees to create and spread positivity throughout their lives and their communities.

This event is currently postponed, but was originally scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2020 at the West Virginia University Davis Theatre in the Creative Arts Center. The Creative Arts Center was the first choice in hosting this event because the space houses the technology to support creative and innovative events.
