At TEDxUVA, we want to be inspired — inspired by those who dared to be different, dreamed of change, took a leap of faith. Indeed, true innovation is transformative, as an old system or method is restructured, repurposed, and reinvented into something modern and unprecedented. At TEDxUVA, we celebrate our speakers — inventors, visionaries, agents of change — and their stories of creativity, of imagination, and, above all, of courage. When we stop seeing things as they are and focus on things as they could be, we find truly profound possibilities.
