Request an invitation

Attendance at TEDxSoweto is by invitation only. The event is limited to 100 delegates. Only a limited number of places are available; they're granted at the discretion of the TEDxSoweto team based on a broad set of criteria aimed at ensuring a rich and stimulating exchange of ideas among a diverse group of peers. The ideal TEDxSoweto audience is made up of individuals who come with a spirit of curiosity, open-mindedness, respect and tolerance, thereby enabling constructive conversation and allowing TEDxSoweto speakers to be more open than they might otherwise be.
