In an ever more complex world, some have made it their mission to tame, overcome or exploit the disorder to create simple solutions to complex problems. We invite you to explore some of their ideas with us.

Organisation of the 2017 TEDxReading event is now under way and we need Partners, Sponsors and Volunteers.

If you love TED and want to get involved, click here and tell us how you can help at TEDxReading 2017.

Following the huge success of TEDxReading 2016, our first event, where our speakers gave fantastic, original talks were doing it all again!

You can view 2016 pictures on our social media and on the gallery page.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxReading, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxReading event, TEDTalks videos 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.
