Who We Are
Ideas worth spreading.
Experiences worth sharing.
People worth hearing.
What is TEDx?
TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.” TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe through TEDx events. These events are organized by passionate individuals, such as Brown community members, who seek to uncover new ideas and to share the latest research in their local areas that spark conversations in their communities. TEDx events include live speakers and recorded TED Talks, and are organized independently under a free license granted by TED.
Our Story
TEDxBrownU was founded in 2011, and was named TEDxBrownUniversity for the first two years. Since 2011, TEDxBrownU has brought to the red circle inspiring members of the Brown community, ranging from students from all backgrounds, to professors, to alumni. TEDxBrownU seeks to create a platform to honor voices from our own community as most speakers series invite outside guests. We believe our community is extremely rich in ideas, stories, and innovations. In our 10 years of history, we produced over 100 TEDx talks, all available online, to share "ideas worth spreading" from the Brown community, across generations.
Why attend TEDxBrownU?
If you are ever inspired by TED and TEDx talks, TEDxBrownU Live events offer a prime opportunity to engage directly with our phenomenal speakers months prior to the content gets released on TED.com and on YouTube. Each TEDxBrownU event will carefully curate a set of accomplished speakers to share talks on a variety of topics. We hope to use our time together as a way to change the way you think about the world, and sparkle new conversations and connections, both among attendees and with our speakers.
Why speak at TEDxBrownU?
We continuously get inspired by what Brown community members are doing in this world, and believe your stories should be heard by more people. TEDxBrownU is one of the few platforms on campus that deliberately only curates Brown speakers, for the Brown community and beyond. Your stories and ideas will be amplified through our live events and professionally curated videos, under the TEDxBrownU brand, on TED.com and the TEDx official YouTube page.
