TED Talent Search

From April to June 2012, TED held special salons in 14 cities on six continents seeking to uncover new talents, voices and ideas the world needs to hear. In each city, we worked with local TEDx organizers who have demonstrated their ability to put on powerful events.

Explore the salons and watch over 290 videos from TED's Worldwide Talent Search, with speakers and performers from many countries vying for a spot at TED2013.
