This year's theme: The Stories We Tell
This year, we’ll explore stories. The ones we tell ourselves, the ones told to us, and those that we tell each other. Stories are everywhere; they allow us to tackle challenging subjects, entertain while teaching, and give us an opportunity to build deep relationships with the storytellers.

Volunteers are the backbone of our TEDxSantaBarbara events. We've been very fortunate over the years to have built a team of wonderful and dedicated change agents. We'd love to invite you to apply for our 2019 Volunteer team.
The Importance of Partnership
We would not be able to produce our event every year without the help of our generous partners. We thank each and every one of you, from the bottom of our hearts!
Meet our Partners
TEDxSantaBarbara Salons create an intimate audience for an evening of highly-curated TED Talks revolving around locally relevant themes. Salons are distinct in their brevity, opportunities for conversation, and heightened interaction between the moderators and audience.
Join Mark Sylvester and local Santa Barbara thought-leaders at one of these opportunities to meet other TEDx’rs and engage in the conversation.
Our Salons are presented in downtown Santa Barbara at the Impact Hub's Chapala Center.

With TEDx Adventures, we harness the energy and enthusiasm generated by our annual TEDx conference and turn our community into a laboratory where ideas can continue to evolve and spread beyond the day of the event.
By holding Adventures throughout the community of Santa Barbara, you can learn more about our amazing thought-leaders and organizations that promote ideas worth spreading.
Adventures are unique and intimate events, designed to offer you unparalleled, behind-the-scenes access to the people and places that make our local community so dynamic.
