TEDxColumbusSalon at the Idea Foundry

Speaker Nominations


ANNOUNCING OPEN NOMINATIONS for the 2019 TEDxColumbusSalon series.

Our 2019 salon series will be focused on “The Future.” The future of work. The future of health. The future of art. The future of music. You name it — we‘re interested. Maybe you have a personal story where your past could help to illuminate the future. Maybe you have a big idea that could change the world. Whether your idea is big or small, we want to hear from you.

The nomination form for TEDxColumbusSalon will remain open all year long, and we will select speakers for each TEDxColumbusSalon six weeks prior to each event so we can help you prepare.
