Let's make history together!
TED is an International Conference conceived in 1984, which has been held annually since 1990. TED events are also held throughout North America and in Europe, Asia and Africa. They address a wide range of topics from scientific, cultural, political, as well as academic topics. The speakers are given a maximum of 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging ways they can.
TED licenses individuals or teams with passion for innovation, leadership and community service to organize TEDx, which is an independently organized conference to serve their community by bringing forth people with powerful ideas that can bring about development in the spirit of ideas worth spreading. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection.

2020 THEME: AWAKENING THE GIANTS!
The theme ‘Awakening the giants’ was adopted for the amount of value and meaning it has as related to our current predicament in relevance to us as individuals, the immediate community and the country as a whole. We have invited innovators, inventors, leading thinkers and entrepreneurs to help us draw from our glorious past, ways and ideas that propelled Katsina as the Center of trade and Scholarship it used to be less than a century ago. We hope to identify where things went wrong and find ways to not only restore past glories but also spark ideas, start conversations and lead actions that can transform Katsina to a culturally rich, modern as well as prosperous state in not only Nigeria but also Africa and the World at large.
