Frequently Asked Questions
What is TEDxUofT?
TEDxUofT is a nonprofit organization licensed by TED. In the spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading, TEDxUofT is designed to gather the brightest minds in the University of Toronto community to spark conversation and connection. Now in our 7th year, we’re building a platform of free knowledge and entertainment from some of the world’s most inspired thinkers, as well as a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, online, at our annual conference, and at our TEDxUofTSalons throughout the year.

Who is behind TEDxUofT?
TEDxUofT is run by a team of dedicated and passionate volunteers who are all current University of Toronto students.

Does the team get paid?

What’s a TEDxUofTSalon?
A Salon is a more intimate TEDx event that dives deeply into one subject area. Up to 100 curious attendees are invited to interact with the speakers and with their fellow guests to discuss the ideas presented, ask questions, and explore the theme from different viewpoints. Salons are an evening of ideas worth sharing, engaging in lively discussions about the topics at hand, and creating a deeper connection to the TEDxUofT community.
