Introducing the TED Residency

Posted by:


Are you working on something that deserves wider exposure? Do you draw insights and inspiration from people in other fields? And have you dreamed of giving a TED Talk but don’t know how to get it—or yourself—onto our radar? Well, here’s your chance.

With TED moving into new headquarters in New York’s SoHo, there will be room to add new members to our in-house community, courtesy of a brand-new program: the TED Residency. Could one of these Residents be you?

If you are chosen as a TED Resident, you will spend four months at TED HQ developing your idea, supported by the TED team plus its extended family of amazing humans and, of course, your fellow Residents. We’ll provide office space and technical assistance; you’re responsible for your own room and board, travel, and living expenses.

You’ll present your idea worth spreading in TED’s brand-new theater—and yes, you can invite friends to cheer you on. Also, your talk will be considered for use on, and the contacts you’ll make just might change your life.

Apply today for this remarkable opportunity!
