November 3rd at the Davidson Theatre: TEDxColumbus 2017 For our ninth TEDxColumbus, we will be asking speakers to explore the social currency of our time: TRUST. How do we earn it? How do we lose it? How do institutions build it? How can we trust data? Why do we sometimes have it with strangers but not family? And more. Much more. Interested speakers and performers were invited to submit nominations. Nominations were due June 2, 2017.

  • TEDxColumbus Speaker Session

    High Schoolers Session

    We had a collection of High School speakers and performers who provoked, revealed and debated RISK - and in ways much different than the adult speakers earlier in the day. The High School Session was held on Nov. 4 from 7pm-9pm after the main event and was free to attend.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxColumbus, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxColumbus event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
