Our world is in a constant state of change. That state of change consists of subtle shifts that eventually form a defined change. The earth we walk on, the environment we are surrounded by, the technology we use, the culture we participate in, and the thoughts we think are constantly evolving every day through these slight shifts that create concrete change.

Have you ever experienced the feeling of a foreshadowing shift that lead to change? What shifts are you seeing now in our world, universe, and community? What change are they leading to? Are there shifts we should create?

In this year’s theme of “Shift”, we seek to be ahead of change by asking these questions.

In the spirit of TED, we believe we can gain insight on these shifts with tangible, well-researched and supported ideas based on factual observations.

What shifts will be created a TedxRichland 2018? We will see October 6th.


It can actually be one of two things:

  • Something that’s new and surprising; an idea or invention that your audience has never heard about.

  • A great basic idea (that your audience has maybe already heard) with a compelling new argument behind it that challenges beliefs and perspectives.

In other words, an idea isn’t just a story or a list of facts. A good idea takes certain evidence or observations and draws a larger conclusion.

Think about this: What will the audience walk away knowing – that you exist, or your new idea?


"Visionaries believe not only that

the impossible can be done

but that it must be done."

- Brad Ferran, from the TED stage
