1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Get ready for an incredible lineup of speakers at TEDxColumbia College SC! TEDxColumbiaCollegeSC is a local, independently organized event curated by the Columbia College TEDx team. Our goal is to create a TED-like experience here in Columbia with an event consisting of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of the college giving their own TEDx talks to an eager audience. At its core, the fundamental goal of TED and TEDx is to spread great ideas, mostly through TED talks. We hope these talks will touch upon topics that impact our local community directly while also being of interest to a global audience.
On Friday, November 3, 2023, from 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM in Spears Concert Hall, join us and 11 speakers who will share their inspiring ideas on the theme of "Staying Connected." Brace yourself for thought-provoking talks that will ignite your curiosity and challenge your perspectives. These incredible individuals are ready to take you on a journey of discovery, exploration, and connection. They'll shed light on the power of staying connected in today's fast-paced world.

What is TEDx?: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxColumbiaCollegeSC where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxColumbiaCollegeSC event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
