New Opportunities: Salon Events

By: Kara Williams

This year, we’ve decided to launch even more events—which means even more TED Talks!

If you want more TED Talks or you belong to a club that you would like to bring TED Talks to, then listen up.

Public Salon Events

First on the agenda is our new public Salon events. These events will be opportunities for anyone who loves TED Talks to come hang out together, watch an inspiring talk, and participate in engaging societal conversation. These events will be open to anyone to come out and enjoy. This is a great way to get more involved with TEDxIndianaUniversity or just to enjoy some inspiration in your day. Our first one will be held on March 2nd, from 7-8:30pm in the Global and International Studies Building room 1122. You can RSVP to come through our Event page.  Come check it out!

Private Salon Events

Another feature on the TEDxIndianaUniversity itinerary will be private salon events. These will be similar to the public events mentioned above, but they will have a more specific focus.

These gatherings will be geared toward a club or organization on campus. We will choose a TED Talk that speaks to the main message of the outside organization. After the video, we will facilitate a conversation about what we watched.

TED Talks, of course, are about a plethora of topics ranging from new technology to stress-relief techniques to the way the human brain works and everything in between. There’s definitely a TED Talk for everyone, and hopefully these events will help you find some talks for you.

So far, we have plans to host salon events in partnership with IU Women in Business and Hutton Honors College, with more currently being scheduled every day.
