Live TEDx talks are about bringing great ideas forward. This year our theme of “Talking Back” provided a platform to share ideas in relation to dialogue, power, community, and discovery.  Our team at CommLabASU is busy editing all of the videos so you can see their valuable research, ideas,  and insights.  We look forward to having these available in August.

What is TEDx?

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 TEDxASUWest, where x = independently organized TED event.  At our TEDxASUWest event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine 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.
