What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading TEDx events are local, self-organized programs that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxUofM, we showcase some of the most fascinating thinkers and doers from the University of Michigan community. Our event sparks deep discussion and energizes audience members to pursue and share their own ideas worth spreading.
