The TEDx events on Saturday will be exciting. We haven’t had this event here since 2015 and it has proven to be just as popular, with two sold out shows! Here is what it’s all about:
This event will feature 16 live presentations and several videos designed to unleash and inspire new ideas and promote innovative thinking. Presenters include ND undergraduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, and South Bend community members. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, the TED organization has created a program called TEDx.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUND, where the “x” designates an independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUND event, TEDTALKS videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection amongst the Notre Dame community. The TED conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including this one, are self-organized.
*Note to everyone working the events, the house will be open for 1 hour prior and the shift start time reflects that. There you have it. Enjoy!
