Inspire Change

TEDxTU celebrates and cultivates social innovation in New Orleans. Our city is stewing a satisfying gumbo brimming with passion, creativity, and ingenuity. TEDxTU inspires and informs social innovation, makes social change a priority, and connects changemakers within New Orleans.

What is TEDx?

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 TEDxTU, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxTU event, TEDTalks 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.  More About TEDx on TED’s website.
