Mort Epstein has had a lifetime of involvement in social and political causes and in artistic pursuits as a designer, woodworker and teacher. From his start as the son of New York City immigrants, to his 95th year in 2012, Mort has covered a lot of territory, producing creative work along the way.

Mort retired from graphic design gradually, and spent more time and energy doing woodworking, creating unique tables, cabinets, sculptures, and the occasional political sign in his midtown Cleveland workshop. He became involved with Habitat for Humanity, not only as a graphic designer and photographer helping the local group with their printed materials but as a carpenter volunteer helping build houses in Cleveland's Central neighborhood and in rural Mississippi.
Mort continues to be active in various political and social causes. Mort was honored in 2009 with the Cleveland Arts Prize, Lifetime Achievement Award.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
