TEDxBoulderSalons are small, intimate events to keep the Boulder community engaged between our regular events.

We will be discussing niche topics, showcasing special speakers, engaging in roundtable discussions, and hosting educational "adventures".

"Salons, with their casual, intimate and malleable structure, harness the hands-on, community-focused spirit, anchoring a TEDx program. Because they happen more frequently, peppered between larger events, they create a special social cohesion." -- Becky Chung

If you have a specific topic or speaker you would like to see explored at a Salon, don't hesitate to reach out to us. We are always open to new ideas!

Upcoming Salons

Dec 13

Theme: Future Transportation on the Front Range

The Boring Company is working on projects in LA and Baltimore. What would happen to the Boulder Denver commute if it only took 12 minutes? How would this impact urban planning goals for Boulder and the cities between here and Denver?

Would this help resolve the issue of 60k in-commuters a day? 

Come hear and discuss these and other topics. Only 90 seats, so get your tickets soon.

In partnership with TEDxCU and BoulderTalks
