TED is coming to Iowa City! TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading". The TEDx Iowa City event will center around the topic of The Power of Community. We have eight speakers from near and far (some even from our own backyard!) who will speak on a wide variety of topics that come together to emphasize the that power rises from communities.
