TEDxFulbrightDublin curates a diverse range of speakers spanning science, technology, the arts, humanities and performance. It exposes exceptional ‘Ideas Worth Sharing’ from rising members, established alumni and friends of the Fulbright community.

Organised by Fulbright Alumnus Dr Lorcan Walsh and Emma Loughney of the Fulbright Commission in Ireland, TEDxFulbrightDublin aims to reconnect the wider Fulbright community and reach out to others who want to share creative new ideas. Talks from TEDxFulbrightDublin 2016 were selected as TEDx editors pick of the week and promoted to the TED.com site receiving over 1.2 million views.

The event will coincide with the opening of the 2019-2020 Fulbright Irish Awards application period running 31 August to 6 November 2018. The Fulbright Program has driven collaboration between Ireland and the U.S. for more than 60 years. To date, over 2000 individuals have taken part in this scholarship programme between the two countries. Those interested in applying for a Fulbright Scholarship to study, research or teach in the USA can visit www.fulbright.ie.

TED, which started in 1984 as a conference on Technology, Entertainment, and Design, seeks to share good ideas on all topics through short, but contagious, talks. TEDx is the platform for local organizers to create their own TED-style event

The 2018 event will have a strong focus on audience participation and development of a local network to continue sharing ideas. Speakers will be announced over the coming weeks, follow the conversation on Twitter #TEDxFulbrightDublin!
