Make plans to join us for TEDxBloomington 2018 featuring our very own Brian Richardson and doctoral student Lizzy Bartlet on Friday, August 24th, at the Buskirk Chumley Theater. It promises to be an evening of engaging talks and inspiring ideas about growth.
This will be the fourth TEDxBloomington event and will feature an engaging group of speakers to explore the theme of growth from creative, personal, municipal, social, and sexual perspectives.
Doors for this general admission event will open at 6pm. The event is expected to last roughly 2.5 hours.
Note: Due to mature language and content, this event is intended for adult audiences. Parental discretion is encouraged for those under 18.
About TEDx, x=independently organized event
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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx programs (subject to certain rules and regulations).
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available for free on TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan, and Daniel Kahneman.
In addition to TED.com, TED’s other open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include the TED Translators Program, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide, the educational initiative TED-Ed, the annual million-dollar TED Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a wish or idea to change the world, TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
