One organization, three ways to get involved.

Attend our event - Enter our competition - Join our team

It's our goal to provide inspiring thinkers and doers a stage to share their great ideas and an audience to hear, spread, and reinvent them. From great ideas come great conversations, conversations where our attendees can learn, think, and conceive new ideas. Those conversations start right here in Claremont, California.

TEDxClaremontColleges hosts an all-day conference featuring a diversity of speakers united in the spirit of “ideas worth spreading” on the campuses of the Claremont Colleges.

Sound interesting? Join us! There are lots of ways to become a part of TEDxClaremontColleges.

1. Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 7th, 2015, for our next big event. Information about theme, tickets, and speakers will come through the next few months.

3. Our event is designed, organized, and run by volunteers from the 7Cs and Claremont community. Interested in joining us? Email us at TEDxClaremontColleges@gmail.com for more information.


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