Welcome to TEDxMACE

Inspired yet unusual, it's a space for
strong and impactful stories, off beat thoughts
connecting you to what's real
while taking you to far far away.

Hello There


Carefully picked out, thoroughly thought out, and once elegantly sequenced, words, have a way of resonating with your soul. They could inspire, rejuvenate or leave you in quiet introspection. Here, at TEDxMACE we bring you hand-picked stories of unconventionally extraordinary individuals who will showcase to you a world for not just what it is, but, for what it could be. It's our fourth attempt in stimulating interesting conversations in little communities; our journey into the future in the company of those making it.


This is our nod to the stories untold, the ideas held back, the words unspoken. It's about those bursts of emotion we've held back, victims to the fickle minded nature of the mob. It's about the adversity, the stumbling blocks that life is fraught with, that set you back and leave you broken but wiser, and it's about the journey you make to climb back up. It's about our desire to backspace out the seeming inevitability of a dreary dystopia, that looms in the shadows of a rising pandemic, and instead, take our first wobbly steps to the future, held up by a will unbroken and a dream tinged with hope. We're listening.

About TED

A story like no other deserves a narrator like no other. TED is a non-profit global community envisioning the tagline 'ideas worth spreading' through a series of talks spanning 18 minutes -- short, powerful conversations developing narratives on diverse topics sprawling Technology, Entertainment, Design, and pretty much everything that's beyond and under the sun. Annually hosted twice, the narratives by leading changemakers, thinkers and doers are recorded and later made available for free.
