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 TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] 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.

TEDx Oshawa's inaugural event is planned for June 2024.

Oshawa is the center of arts and culture for the Region of Durham, Ontario. We are excited about bringing the TEDx stage to Oshawa.
We are looking for sponsors to help cover the costs associated with the event. TEDx events are volunteer driven not-for-profit in nature. If you would like to find out more about the sponsorship opportunity, please contact me using the contact form below.
