Applications for tickets to TEDxIVC are out now, and tickets will be given away for free. TEDxIVC is not-for-profit with the sole intention of sharing ideas worth spreading. TEDxIVC will have tickets made free, as they want anyone that desires to seek empowerment through powerful and inspirational ideas, regardless of social status or income, to have the opportunity to attend this one of a kind TEDx event.
TEDxIVC is a student/alumni run event that was previously supported by the Irvine Valley College Administration. After the IVC Administration changed with the termination of several administrators, including IVC President Glenn Roquemore, TEDxIVC was forced to relocate and lost all IVC Administrative support. As a result, TEDxIVC relies completely on sponsorships and donations to stay afloat. If you’d like to support TEDxIVC, please make a donation to the TEDxIVC GoFundMe page attached.
If you’re interested in sponsoring or partnering up with TEDxIVC, please reach out to TEDxIVC via firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. For press inquiries, you may contact the organizer directly at email@example.com.
