TEDxHilliard 2017

The second annual TEDxHilliard is slated for Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at Hilliard Bradley Performing Arts Center, 2800 Walker Road. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. Speaker and artist presentations begin at 6:00 p.m. The theme for this year’s event is “Spark”.

It’s the ignition point of inventions, connections, and breakthrough ideas. It’s a single moment that can forever change how we view our world. All the wonderful tales from our community that started with a single spark.

TEDxHilliard organizers are looking for speakers and performers willing to share their “spark” stories. Simply apply by February 15.

Hilliard has been at the center of educational and local business innovation, and a growing number of creative outlets.  This event is named as such to be inclusive of the school, business, and non-profit partnerships that are coming together to support this opportunity to spread the ideas from our community to reach others and join the TEDx movement.

Think of TEDxHilliard as an awesome dinner party, with great food, inspirational performances, brilliant speakers and mind-blowing conversation. By joining us for the event, you will have the opportunity to be a part of a truly unique event that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform.

Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.

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 TEDxHilliard, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxHilliard event, live speakers, musicians and artists will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
