TEDx returning to Sioux Falls

Feb. 22, 2019

The speaker series TEDx is coming back to Sioux Falls.

Thadeus Giedd is the new license holder for TEDxSioux Falls and is running it as a volunteer community project.

TED, which features short talks of “ideas worth spreading,” started in California in the 1980s and quickly achieved global reach.

It created the TEDx model so communities could orchestrate their own events. Talks are capped at 18 minutes with a focus on innovative and provocative thoughts that connect with audience members and online viewers.

“TED is a globally acclaimed brand and platform that I believe needs to be in Sioux Falls,” said Giedd, who works at the Zeal Center for Entrepreneurship. “It’s all about featuring new thought, amazing ideas and sharing them to evoke discussion and connection with great reach. I love all things TED and TED Talks and am extremely excited to bring the platform to our city to not only view on video but witness and be part of in person.”

The first event will be at 6:30 p.m. April 11 at the Museum of Visual Materials.

Tickets are limited and cost $30. Videos of the talks will be uploaded to TED channels.

Some speakers have been selected, and others will be chosen by application.

TEDx most recently was in Sioux Falls in 2014.
