What is TEDx?

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 called TEDxIndianaUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxIndianaUniversity 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.

“And so, onwards… along a path of wisdom, with a hearty tread, a hearty confidence.. however you may be, be your own source of experience. Throw off your discontent about your nature. Forgive yourself your own self. You have it in your power to merge everything you have lived through- false starts, errors, delusions, passions, your loves and your hopes- into your goal, with nothing left over.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human

The theme for this year is “All Too Human”. The goal behind this theme is to encourage, in our peers, the motivation to understand and solve our most pressing problems. It is based on the book “Human, All Too Human” by Friedrich Nietzsche, which challenges the human tendency to look for comfort, stability, and easy answers. This concept embodies the goal and the general impact we want to make with this event.

We will be releasing the speakers over the next week and Tickets go on sale September 30th, so stay tuned for those updates!
