Help us keep spreading ideas...

TEDxIndianaUniversity is an organization dedicated to sharing ideas and amplifying voices that otherwise go unheard. Despite all the changes we have had to make this year to ensure the safety and wellness of everyone, we have not faltered from our mission. We have continued to operate fully and hosted events - like our conference - that have helped start and continue conversations that truly matter.


However, due to us making our conference virtual and free this year, we have not been able raise money from ticket sales. As an organization that hopes to continue hosting events that add value to our community, we would truly appreciate any support that you can offer. We cannot be who we are without you!

We will be hosting some reflective activities in between talks. We encourage all of you to participate individually!
