The Chicago Alliance TED Event

The Chicago Alliance is planning an independently organized TED event, details are currently TBD. More information should be available soon. Thank you for your interest.

We are looking for TED Heads who are ready to give back.

Watching a TED Talk online is an experience. Planning a TED event, going behind the scenes, and leaving your fingerprint is an interactive, engaging, and exciting experience.

This project takes a village, a city, and the whole community, where the we work together, get to know each other, and pay it forward collectively. No experience with previous TED events is required. You will be part of a committed group of professionals who share an interest in producing an impactful, innovative event for the Chicago community.
