    The TEDxColeParkStudio license is a TEDx license designed to provide access for us to produce compelling new ideas anytime, anywhere, and independent of our live TEDx events. There is no live event production and all Studio talks are produced and uploaded to TED unaffiliated with any larger TEDx event. 

    Studio talks are a great way for us to optimize any new recording and production techniques, visuals and animation, on-location filming, and any technique that visibly features our speakers and helps communicate the idea of the talks more powerfully than a traditional stage talk. 

    In addition, studio talks give us an opportunity to respond thoughtfully to current affairs. Is there an urgent issue in our community demanding an expert voice and fact-checked idea? Studio licenses empower you to readily respond to current affairs affecting you. 


    While ticket sales and brand activations are popular ways for our TEDx events to raise revenue to cover event costs, Studio licensees are looking to social media partnerships, thoughtful custom content creation, and programming track sponsorships in order to forge local partnerships.
