Announcing TEDxTuscaloosa

Ideas Worth Spreading

That’s the slogan of TED, the organization that has become an international success in their mission to change attitudes, change lives, and change the world. TEDxTuscaloosa begins its first year by embracing that initial concept – that ideas with value should be shared. As we start our hunt for speakers for spring 2015, we will be looking for those with ideas worth spreading. That is both our theme and our mission.

We are searching for thinkers and doers in our community who can share with our TEDxTuscaloosa audience ideas that will impact Tuscaloosa and inspire growth. As Tuscaloosa continues to evolve as a cultural and intellectual hub for the state of Alabama, we hope this event can foster growth, new ideas, and change for the better. Help us tap into the many minds, voices and passions that make up our community. Encourage people you know who have great ideas that can impact Tuscaloosa to apply to share those ideas with our TEDxTuscaloosa audience.

TEDxTuscaloosa is now accepting nominations, including self-nominations, for speakers. We are also looking for volunteers to help with all of the work that is required to make a TEDx event happen. Everyone involved in TEDxTuscaloosa is unpaid, so we’re also looking for sponsors and partners, too.

We hope to see you in the spring.
