What is TEDxRoseburg

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.

You are here because you want to know more about this TED-like event called TEDxRoseburg, where x = independently organized TED event. TEDxRoseburg is an event where speakers will give individual talks on many topics, backed by science, data, and personal experience. The talks are chosen for their content and for being an idea worth spreading, having the possibility to change the world. For examples of past talks, check out our archives here.

This event was last held in July 2017 and had 15 speakers, most of whom were from Roseburg. It was a smaller event because the first events are limited to 100 persons. Subsequent events can have up to 1000 attendees, however, the licensee must have attended a live TED event (not TEDx event). We are proud to say that this is happening and 2017’s licensee was awarded the opportunity to attend TEDWomen 2019 in December.

After TEDWomen, we will begin the process of reapplying for the TEDxRoseburg license to bring it back early 2021. If you want to learn more, please reach out to us anytime. We’d love to connect with you!
