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.
