Created in the spirit of TED’s mission, "ideas worth spreading," this year's TEDxBirmingham theme will highlight the hidden genius and untapped potential within the city of Birmingham. Our speakers and musical guests each come from a variety of backgrounds and represent a mere handful of ideas that can change the social landscape of Birmingham.

The website for this event is nearly complete and will be posted with final speaker confirmations around mid-August. Seating is limited so we will have a short application process available once the site is launched.
