TED / TEDx / TEDxAarhus

What is TED?

TED is a nonprofit organization spreading ideas in the form of short talks (usually no longer than 18 mins). The annual TED conference is held in Vancouver, Canada, but all talks – TED and TEDx alike – go online afterwards, inspiring and entertaining an even broader audience. There are no limits for the kinds of topics a TED Talk can cover – as long as the speaker has an idea worth spreading. TED Talks bring people together, amaze, and challenge you to look at the world differently.

What is TEDx?

TEDx is a program of local and self-organized events licensed by TED. A TEDx event is an opportunity for people to get together for a live TED-like experience rooted in their own community.

What is TEDxAarhus?

TEDxAarhus is the biggest TEDx event in Denmark. At our TEDxAarhus event, live TEDx speakers, TED Talk videos, performances and unique experiences combine to spark deep discussion and connection in our local community of Aarhus.

Are there any other TEDx events?

In Denmark, there are a few other TEDx events, TEDxOdense, TEDxCopenhagen and the student-run TEDxAarhusGynasiumTilst. TEDx events are held all over the world – a full list of events can be found at the TED website.

Can I organize my own TEDx event?
