TEDxAarhus Main Events
[re]* is a prefix, a word-forming element, meaning “again, undoing, backwards, anew, once more”. It makes you question; shift perspectives; think outside the box; seek change.
In 2019, TEDxAarhus invited our audience to [re]think their perspective, [re]ignite their curiosity and [re]imagine their ideas as we came together for a day of live talks, performances and interactive experiences that each challenged, entertained and inspired around the theme: [re]*.
2018: Look Closer
TEDxAarhus 2018 encouraged our audience to Look Closer. To look closer at the world, at the people around them, and at themselves. We dared them to challenge their first impressions and assumptions.
Together we zoomed in on the magnificent details of everyday things. Took a step back to take a closer look at the whole. And explored if looking closer means changing perspectives entirely?
2017: Into the Wild
Since the beginning of time, people have been going into the wild and exploring the unknown – both physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Into the Wild could be about exploring undiscovered land – but it could also be a gazillion other things. It could be about travelling the world, pushing your limits, breaking the rules, conquering your fears, you name it.
At TEDxAarhus 2017 we met speakers who have gone Into the Wild in ways we couldn’t have ever imagined.
2016: To The Moon and Back
For centuries, reaching the Moon has been a utopian dream of human advancement and space travel. Although it was deemed impossible, people who worked hard on their dreams proved everybody wrong.
In 2016, at the first TEDxAarhus, we heard inspirational talks about the work, passion, dedication and failures which enabled us to reach impossible dreams at To The Moon and Back.
TEDxAarhusSalon: Turning Points
TEDxAarhusSalon Turning Points will focus on positivity, connection, and reflection during this uncertain period we’re all experiencing. Our social-distancing-approved online Salon will feature new recorded talks from the speakers’ homes and performances and then a live interactive conversation with our speakers.
TEDxAarhusSalon Switched On: A Sustainable Future
At TEDxAarhusSalon Switched On: A Sustainable Future, we took a look at all things energy through a series of screened short talks.
TEDxAarhusSalon: Weird Science
TEDxAarhusSalon: Weird Science was our first Salon event. Here, we deep dived into some of the quirkiest science and research-themed TED Talks and took a closer look at humour in storytelling.

For the first event of it’s kind, TEDxAarhus jumped off the stage and into the streets of Aarhus for a series of mini live TEDx talks which popped up in unusual spaces and much-loved places across the city. 13 speakers and over 100 people joined us as we walked across the city to hear local ideas presented from museums, marketplaces, hidden galleries, bicycle racks, street art parks and more!
