TED is an annual event where the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share their passions. “TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design – three broad subject areas that are shaping our future.
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. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
TEDxVCU is student-led and produced event for the Virginia Commonwealth University community. In 2014, the single day conference explored how students, faculty and community leaders are pushing boundaries, seeking solutions to problems, and constantly strive to improve upon the human condition through the theme of Simplicity. This year, TEDxVCU presents Juxtapose, where speakers will expose common beliefs in order to lead discussions to think beyond what we know and understand.
