What is TEDx? 

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

At a TEDx event, TED videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TEDxTexasStateUniversity

This full-day event will feature innovative ideas from a variety of speakers, wonderful entertainment from Texas State students, and the chance to discuss and share with others in the community. The event in February 2021 will be the 5th annual event at Texas State University. We are excited to present talks that revolve around the theme of Amplify.
