What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a programme called TEDx. TEDx is a programme of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxDunedin, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxDunedin event, TEDTalks 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 programme, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.


The theme for TEDxDunedin 2017 is “Making a Difference”. In the spirit of TEDx this should be interpreted in its widest possible meaning.

As organisers of TEDxDunedin, we intend to make a difference in how we plan and run the event.
