New Central Library | Patricia A. Whelan Performance Hall800 - 3 Street SE Learn more about the library
Join us at the dazzling New Central Library, where we will be activating spaces across this magnificent building for our talks from the stage and our participant interactions.
All interactions and refreshment breaks will be within the library.
Our event curators are always hard at work scouting for leading-edge ideas and the speakers behind them. If you have a question, please let us know.
Please note that speaker nominations (including self-nominations) should be submitted via our online speaker nomination form.
When we have an active event, registration links will be provided in our Events section.
Speakers for upcoming events are usually announced about 4 weeks in advance of the event. Please note that all events are "as is", and we cannot guarantee that a particular speaker is able to appear.
Compared to watching an individual TED or TEDx talk online, a TEDxCalgary event is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a full day of ideas and conversations with others who are equally curious about the world around them. In addition to the amazing speakers and performers we profile on stage, all of our participants at the event contribute to the awesomeness of the day through their interactions with one another, and with our interactions partners in the venue. As part of your ticket, we provide refreshment and meal breaks throughout the day to nourish the body as well as the mind! Read our What to Expect article for more information on how to make the most of the event!
We are an independently organized TEDx event, operating under licence from TED. We do not speak for the TED organization, and our event is required to conform with a number of TEDx licencing provisions. Please seethe TEDx site for more information .
Yes! We're fortunate to have several other TEDx licencees in the city, including our colleagues atTEDxYYC who also started operating in 2009. There also are TEDxYouth@Victoria Park, TEDxRundleAcademy, and TEDxBowValleyCollege (invitation only). Each TEDx team brings a different approach to organizing their event, while conforming to the general TEDx licencing rules.
Our speaker nominations are currently offline while we review nominations. Please see our Become a Speaker page for general information on how to nominate someone to be a speaker.
