Open Xperience with the Humans Behind TEDxCapeTown

Open Day2021

Have you ever wondered who volunteers behind the scenes at TEDxCapeTown? Perhaps you’ve watched a couple of TED talks or attended a few of our past events, and are curious to learn more. Maybe, you’d just like to know how it all works. Or find yourself thinking, ‘How do I join the team?’

As we gear up to celebrate 10 years of TEDxCapeTown in 2021, we’re opening our virtual doors to meet, engage with you (and answer some of your questions).

We often get asked - What is TEDx? Is it the same as TED? Do you not get paid? Does  one team organise all the TEDx events in South Africa? What do you actually do? 

Come and Xperience a day with our team, to learn more and connect with us. Our team of over 25 volunteers look forward to hosting you and showcasing the why, what and how of TEDxCapeTown!

About TEDx, x=independently organised event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.

About TED

TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we're building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world's most inspired thinkers - and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
