Since the conception of TEDxUQ in 2011, one element that remains and revels is our thrill in creating a platform to blur the lines between the cognitive and the creative; pushing the boundaries of human knowledge into the realms of the future.
Imagine a world where everyone kept their thoughts and ideas to themselves. Everything would grind to a standstill. Conversation and collaboration are the driving force behind innovation and change. A single idea holds the potential to influence multitudes, at a local or global scale.
From self-driving cars to increasing concerns about the environment and international security; today’s society is one to talk about.

What is TEDxUQ?
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 TEDxUQ where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxUQ, 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.
Speaker applications for 2017 have closed, stay tuned for next years applications.
Keen to meet like minded people and listen to the best and brightest? Tickets open at 6pm tonight.
