Event description

Description

Ticket sales will begin on Friday, December 1, at 10:00am CST.

We have all experienced those moments in time in which nothing afterwards is the same as it was before. The change from BEFORE to AFTER can be instantaneous, or painfully slow; experienced individually by a single person, or collectively by an entire generation. We often find our definition and meaning through that change - when the before becomes the after.

At times, we eagerly await the moment when we can shrug off our before in exchange for a better after. Sometimes, however, we only realize those moments have happened once life is different and we find ourselves in a new reality.

This shift from how things were before to the world that comes after can depict the irrevocable nature of time and the grit of humanity when faced by the unexpected. Hear compelling stories of the struggle, celebration, transformation, and imagination experienced by others in these moments, and help them spread their ideas throughout our community and beyond.

Who are you before TEDxBirmingham?

More importantly, who will you be after?

Join us on March 24, 2018 to be a part of a moment that changes everything.

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 sponsorship of the Innovation Depot, a 501(c)(3) organization.
