Person speaking on stage at TEDx event

TEDxDartmouth 2020

April 18

This event has been postponed.

19/20 Hop Hosted

In light of urgent public health concerns, the Hop has postponed or canceled all Hop events scheduled to take place through May 31, 2020. You can find the list of postponed events, as well as the status of all upcoming Hop performances on our Event Status page. To learn more, please visit our Spring 2020 FAQ page.

Planned and executed entirely by undergraduate volunteers, TEDxDartmouth is an all-day conference that offers a platform for new, challenging, and cross-disciplinary ideas—in short, "ideas worth spreading."

A philosophy major who packed up his life and visited 59 national parks in 59 weeks. A police officer who's revolutionizing the way in which law enforcement interacts with the mentally ill. A Swiss economist and author who has a big theory about little nations' economies. These are only a few of the ideas that will grace the TEDx stage on April 18—our lineup of eight speakers were carefully selected to challenge, educate, and inspire our audience around our 2020 theme, "Vision."  

Operating under an independent license from TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), TEDxDartmouth invites the Dartmouth and the Upper Valley communities to join together and share ideas in a way unique from other Dartmouth events. This year, we're inviting our audience to engage with the concept of "vision" in all its multifaceted forms: communication, collaboration, reflection, and growth. Join us and see where your vision intersects with ours.  This event is produced by TEDxDartmouth and hosted by the Hop.
