Spring 2018 TED Residency!
New York City
March 12th – June 15th

On March 12, TED welcomed its latest class to the TED Residency program, an in-house incubator for breakthrough ideas. These 19 Residents will spend 14 weeks in the New York headquarters working and thinking together; the class includes exceptional people from all over the map, including Brazil, the Netherlands and Korea.  This will culminate in a six minute TED Talk in the amphitheater of their New York City conference headquarters in Soho.

The new Residents include:

  • An entrepreneur with an ingenious financial solution to slowing deforestation
  • A musician uncovering the deep roots of country music’s twang
  • A social worker striving to remove bias from foster-care evaluation systems
  • A choreographer designing reassuring movement for robots

Aside from refining her public speaking skills and giving a TED Talk, Queen Esther will complete a rough draft of a memoir about her Lowcountry childhood.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less) under the slogan “ideas worth spreading”. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. By November 2012, TED Talks had been watched over one billion times worldwide.
