TEDxHuntsville is a local derivative of TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), a nonprofit organization known for online talks. Since 2009, local professionals and residents excited about Ideas Worth Spreading have volunteered to bring TED to the Tennessee Valley area. The team meets throughout the year, curating and planning for the annual TEDxHuntsville and TEDxYouth@Huntsville events, plus smaller intimate gatherings for livestreams and TEDTalk sessions. TEDxHuntsville is involved in bringing awareness and participation to positive, engaging, local community projects.
Join the diverse mix of attendees for a “brain spa” experience chock full of dynamic speakers, performers, interactive displays and a delicious selection of local cuisine. TEDxHuntsville 2017 returns to Thurber Arts Center on Sunday, September 17, 2017. Doors open at noon and program starts at 1 PM.
Call for speakers ending on June 17
TEDxHuntsville 2017: Transformation
What happens when we push past our comfort zones? What treasures lay waiting to be discovered? As the largest municipality in North Alabama, what does the next chapter of Huntsville look like? Transformation forges a process of radical change and helps shape the community in a new direction and offers opportunities to expand to new frontiers, new ideas and reveals what we are truly made of.
We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. – Maya Angelou
