What is TEDxTufts?

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 TEDxTufts, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTufts 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.

TEDxTufts 2019

TEDxTufts is proud to present our 5th annual event, powered by the spread of ideas within and throughout the larger Tufts community. This year’s theme is Mosaic in Motion— our speakers each focus on a specialized topic, honing in on an individualized subject with passion and intention. Yet altogether, the talks create a mosaic of the human experience: what it means to explore, understand, take action, and question further.
