TEDxColumbusSalons: Restart

While gathering for our typical, large scale TEDxColumbus event is not possible in the near future, we know that our Columbus community has ideas to share. So we will be launching two virtual TEDxColumbusSalons in 2021, and we can’t wait. The events will feature NEW speakers and performers, all professionally recorded at WOSU studios, and beamed into your home. There will be talks, performances, and conversations spread over two events.





DEADLINE for speaker submissions was November 13 at noon.


Virtual Event

What Inspires Us

TEDxColumbus aims to showcase our best and brightest thinkers, doers, and visionaries with ideas that will shatter bias, ignite creativity, and move our community to action.

This year, TEDxColumbus wants to know— What are your ideas? And how has 2020 impacted you?

  • What technology is shifting the way we interact with the world?
  • What new medical advances will save lives?
  • What art or music is changing how we think and feel?
  • What social movements are creating cultural change?
  • How are we adapting to our new realities?
  • What will our future look like?

We want to hear IDEAS that spark conversation, STORIES that spark connection, and QUESTIONS that spark debate.


As a reminder– speakers and presenters who share a distinct point of view, fueled by research, mastery or experience on one central idea, discovery, or trend are preferred.  Speakers who intend to lecture, riff, preach, or opine will not be chosen.
