What is TEDxDelthorneStudio?
Updated: Mar 7, 2021
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxDelthorneStudio, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxDelthorneStudio, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion around thought provoking topics. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
Studio talks are standalone TEDx talks produced separately from a TEDx event. They are often filmed in closed settings with no live in-person or virtual audience. They may also be filmed on a site-specific location that helps communicate the speaker’s idea (e.g. filming a scientist in her lab, a teacher in his classroom, etc.). This format, different from the traditional stage talk, enables TEDx organizers to more easily experiment with creative new production methods to communicate the speaker’s idea more powerfully.
Studio talks follow the applicable TEDx Rules and TEDx Content Guidelines. Talk format and duration should be optimized for digital viewers. TED recommends Studio talks aim for a 6-12 minute duration. All talks must be less than 18 minutes.
