In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED 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 call TEDxDenisonU, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxDenisonU event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
This year’s event will feature talks by students, alumni, and faculty members on a variety of topics, including heartbreak, radical gamification, social media, and the concept of home explored through art.
