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 Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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 all self-organized.
Welcome to TEDxYouth@Wrigleyville
This historic event brings together a youth representative and their chosen mentors from each of Chicago’s 50 wards for an idea-driven day filled with opportunities to learn, grow, and collaborate.
This innovative full-day event will be held August 4, 2019, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., at the Center on Halsted (3656 N Halsted St, Chicago, IL 60613). The day includes approximately 10 live TEDx talks and presentations, several previously recorded TED talks, as well as a variety of interactive and inspiring activation programs, followed by a free reception for all attendees, speakers, sponsors, and organizers. Lunch will be provided, and all tickets are free of charge to the youth and mentors invited to attend. All youth and mentor invitees are expected to commit to a full day of attendance.
