Mind-stretching programs that connect thought leaders, solution seekers and the merely curious to “why not?” challenges will return on Dec. 1...this year at the brand new City Performance Hall in the Dallas Arts District. We’re pushing boundaries to find inventive, brave, smart, funny, engaging and provocative presenters who will ask our audience to, quite simply, re:think everything.

We hope you’ll be a part of the magic.

Your 2012 ticket includes the full-day TEDxSMU conference, a light snack breakfast, lunch, snacks throughout the day, and access to the Saturday evening after party.
