In a joint session of Congress in 1961, President John F. Kennedy said that before the end of the decade, the United States would put a man on the moon – a feat many thought was improbable and most thought was impossible. Yet on July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong stepped off the Lunar Module’s ladder and onto the moon’s surface. 

From an early age we are told, “If you can believe it, you can achieve it.” 

But as we get older, self-doubt creeps into our minds. What if no one supports me? What if it’s too hard? What if I am humiliated? What if I fail? 

Rather than accepting these limiting beliefs, our speakers and performers have challenged the status quo and looked for new and better ways to impact our city.

What would you accomplish if you asked Why not? Why not now? Why not me?

Dare to see the POSSIBILITY.

Join us March 25, 2017 to hear ideas worth spreading and challenge yourself to see beyond what you CAN do to what you WILL do.

TEDxBirmingham is an independent, volunteer effort operated under license from TED. Through various initiatives – including a daylong main event, smaller salon events, and more – TEDxBirmingham strives to foster the diffusion of ideas in order to spark conversations and innovations that lead to a better Birmingham.

At a TEDxBirmingham event, speakers from a variety of backgrounds – none of whom are paid – share a bold, new idea through a short talk of 18 minutes or less. The events also feature artistic performances and hands-on, interactive experiences. The participants at a TEDxBirmingham event represent a cross-disciplinary mix of people, ranging from civic and business leaders to educators, technologists, artists, and more.

TEDxBirmingham – like all TEDx events – is not organized for political reasons, monetary reward, or personal gain. Everyone associated with TEDxBirmingham does so because they believe in the power of ideas to change the world.

TEDxBirmingham is supported by partners, who provide both in-kind contribution of their services or products, or financial contributions. TEDxBirmingham is organized under the financial stewardship of the Innovation Depot, which is a 501(c)(3) organization.
