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 TEDxUniHalle, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUniHalle 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.
Our team consists of a colourful group of students, workers, creatives, strategists, professionals, amateurs, thinkers, visionists, dreamers and so on, who came together in July 2016 to realise the first TEDx event in Halle (Saale). To start with our TEDxUniHalle event, we first founded our association Ideenspektrum Halle e.V. which every member is also part of. Being guiding in science, we decided to cooperate with the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, which is also the name giver of this TEDx event.
