A cosmologist from South Africa. A found-object artist from Kenya. A neuroscientist from Palestine. A crowd fitting this description (and that’s just the tip of the iceberg) can only mean one thing: TED Fellows. The new class of TED2013 Fellows, as well as 2012 and 2013 Senior Fellows, converged in Long Beach on Friday to start their own pre-TED conference. This video gives a glimpse of the first get-to-know-you gathering and introduces a few new faces.

And stay tuned for our coverage of the TED Fellows speaker sessions, happening on Monday, February 25.
