Get Involved


We value our partners, who make our event possible. By teaming up with us, you’ll gain exposure and access to thousands of influential thought leaders in the Puget Sound region and beyond. TEDxSeattle is a one-of-a-kind, curated event. People from all over the Northwest enjoy this highly sought-after event because it facilitates conversations, community, and collaborations.

Our eighth TEDxSeattle full day event will be held November 19, 2017 at McCaw Hall in Seattle. See what says on what it means to be a TEDx sponsor.

Another way to partner with TEDxSeattle is to host an Adventure.


TEDxSeattle is a volunteer run organization that taps into skills and experience from a variety of industries and backgrounds. A few of us work year-round to organize speakers and volunteers, whereas others come in just a few days before and help push this extraordinary event into reality. Below are some details on our volunteer types.

Pre-Event Volunteers
We need more help as we get closer to our day-long event, November 18 at McCaw Hall. We’re sorting out our needs for this year and will be posting applications for pre-event volunteers in spring.

Day-of Event Volunteers
We are not yet accepting volunteer applications for this November.  If you’re not already on our email list, please join, and follow us on social media to stay in the know on future activities.

Core Team Volunteers
These volunteers pledge a considerable amount of time and energy to keep TEDxSeattle running year-round. We are evaluating needs for individuals with specific skill sets for 2017 and will post volunteer job descriptions as needed.


To learn more about what we consider in a speaker, watch Chris Anderson, the curator of TED (aka “the head of TED”) on TED’s secret to great public speaking.  We will post details on our how to apply as a speaker for this year’s November event themed Changing Places in late March.
