Speaker Nominations Are Closed

TEDxColumbus 2019: SPARK


A spark is a beginning. A tiny bundle of energy that builds to something great.  


To spark is to ignite, activate,to set the world on fire.

This year TEDxColumbus wants to know–What sparks you, Columbus?


  • -What technology is going to shift the way we interact with the world?
    -How will a new concept in the classroom disrupt the future workforce?
    -What art or music is changing the way we think and feel?
    -How can we harness the power of the internet?
    -Can we find ways to adapt to a changing environment and thrive?
    -Is a business breaking the mold?
    -What medical advancement will save lives?

What do we want to hear?

IDEAS that spark conversation. Stories that spark connection.

It is through these conversations and connections that our community will ignite.
