In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share in the deep discussion and connection that characterize TED talks. New Memphis organizes this event as we believe this powerful platform has the perfect home in the Bluff City; the line-up of speakers brings intentionally diverse perspectives and topics to the stage every year.

TEDxMemphis: Truth or Dare

Courage looks different for everyone, but it’s something we are all called to display at some point or another. TEDxMemphis Truth or Dare will explore bravery through the lens of the classic party game we all experienced in childhood. We might not have realized it then, but the heart-pounding sensation when your turn was called was your first step into the unknown. Those tiny steps forward propelled your thinking and now impact your daily decision-making. Whether you’re choosing to venture into the vulnerability of truth or exploring a new daring opportunity, how will you show your bravery? Join us at TEDxMemphis Truth or Dare to be inspired to take a leap forward.

The 2023 conference will be held at the Crosstown Theatre on February 11, 2023.
