Our world is made up of connections—an intricate web built from the ties of biology and the wires of technology. At the University of Georgia, we study these natural and human connections, and we’ve found that the remarkable can happen when unexpected connections occur: paths cross, forces combine, people collaborate, and new ideas come alive. The most powerful connections are the ones we never see coming. At TEDxUGA 2018, we will explore the stories, experiences, and ideas that emerge when things connect. Join us on Thursday, March 22 for an evening of ideas worth spreading!


Every year, a carefully selected group of UGA faculty, alumni, and students gather together at TEDxUGA to share their philosophies, art, inspiration, and ideas worth spreading.

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 TEDxUGA, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUGA 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. Learn more about TEDx.

Connecting. Sharing. TEDxUGA.
