Changing the Midlands, opening our minds.   January 19, 2015.

TED Everywhere

TED is a non-profit devoted to ideas worth spreading. At its two annual conferences, it convenes the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers and challenges them to give the talks of their lives.


We know that big thinkers live right here in the Midlands. We will introduce you to some of Columbia’s best–those leading the charge and those who go unnoticed but leave the scene completely changed.

2014 Speaker Videos

More than a dozen high-profile speakers from across the Midlands presented at the third annual TEDxColumbiaSC on a wide range of topics. Spanning graphene to adaptive yoga, the members of this year’s lineup challenged the audience and the greater community to reconsider their words, their actions and even the basis of the entire physical universe.
