Join us Friday evening (11/11) for TEDxSMU After Dark – a casual, fun night of food and drinks mixed with speakers and live music. Join us Saturday (11/12) for two full sessions of TEDxTalks from local and national speakers. Come and learn something new, meet someone new, and get more connected to your community.
What is TEDxSMU?
TEDxSMU is a conference that centers on passion and ideas. Following the TED format, TEDxSMU is organized into sessions where 7-9 speakers share their ideas worth spreading. In between sessions, audience members get the chance to mingle with speakers and each other, as well as participate in interactive exhibits and discussions.
About 2016 Theme:
Every year we pick a theme as a guide to enlighten our direction. Themes highlight our goals and vision for the conference. We derive ideas from our theme, then curate speakers and performers from those ideas. When we are wired into our passions, our ideas become illuminated. During the conference, the theme will be seen not only in the presentations, but also in the interactive exhibits in the social spaces. When we are wired in as a community, great ideas become illuminated.
