What is TEDx?
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. The "x" represents an independently organized TED event. The first TED talks started in 1984 from Richard Saul Wurman?s observation of the convergence between Technology, Entertainment, and Design. These talks have continued to enlighten all audiences through unique experiences and viewpoints.
TEDxUofW is a registered student organization established to bring inspirational and informative TED style talks to the University of
Washington. Since 2012, our organization has shed light on many topics in science, technology, art, music and more. During these four years we have put on a sold-out, all student-run event, gathering a community of creative thinkers, community leaders and, simply put, lovers of TED.
Define: In Motion
This year's theme of "In Motion" hopes to showcase the ever-changing nature of human activity in the Seattle community. To be in motion means to constantly evolve, and what we, TEDxUofW, strive to show is our devotion to the progress that is so evident within our local and global sphere in a University setting. The event is open to all student, faculty, alumni and the greater Seattle area.
