What is TEDx?
x = Independently Organized Event
On September 23, 2017, Austin College will host the second annual TEDxAustinCollege event. It will feature members of the Austin College community as speakers, TED talks, lunch, and an interactive Discovery Depot to explore ideas worth spreading. The theme for this year’s event is Pieces of a Mosaic.
“As a mosaic is created from pieces of many sizes, colors, shapes, and elements, our global community includes individuals of diverse cultures, backgrounds, abilities, and experiences. Coming together, we can fashion a masterpiece with our varying ideas, beliefs, functions, and potentials. How then can we inspire diverse individuals to join together to create a more beautiful world mosaic?”
