TEDxMemphis: Truth or Dare
Join us at TEDxMemphis for a series of dynamic, engaging, and thought-provoking TEDTalks.
About this Event

Since launching in 2015, TEDxMemphis has produced more than 100 TED Talks from innovative speakers showcasing groundbreaking ideas that have the potential to shape our city and our world.

Courage looks different for everyone, but it’s something we are all called to display at some point or another. TEDxMemphis Truth or Dare, the 2023 conference theme, will explore bravery through the lens of the classic party game we all experienced in childhood. We might not have realized it then, but the heart-pounding sensation when your turn was called was your first step into the unknown. Those tiny steps forward propelled your thinking and now impact your daily decision-making. Whether you’re choosing to venture into the vulnerability of truth or exploring a new daring opportunity, how will you show your bravery? Join us to be inspired to take a leap forward. This year's conference will be hosted by Ephie Johnson, President/CEO of Neighborhood Christian Centers, Inc.

  • Roshun Austin | Executive Director, The Works
  • Fletcher Cleaves | Founder, The Sky is NOT the Limit
