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 TEDxTucson, where x = independently organized TED event. The goal of TEDxTucson is to be a catalyst for change – bringing thinkers and doers in the Tucson community together to have meaningful conversations that lead to positive change.



"You’re part of the crowd that may be about to ignite the biggest learning cycle in human history."

We bring together the brightest Tucson minds to share their ideas with a curated audience of open-minded individuals.

Tucson is vibrantly full of innovation, bursting with amazing art, music, and delicious food. Our mission is threefold:

  • To show Tucson to itself by creating live events.
  • To show Tucson to the world by creating professional video recordings of our  events.
  • To create a passionate community within Tucson for discussing ideas and exploring new perspectives.

We create memorable experiences that bring our community together to listen to amazing speakers or entertainers.

We share ideas and encourage conversations, during our events and throughout our community.

We create community, while we’re being created by the community.  Our events usually are sold out, so tickets are coveted.
