TEDxCU 2024 THEME REVEAL
Renaissance is a French word meaning rebirth or new beginning. At its core, the concept of Renaissance is characterized by a renewed emphasis on humanism, a philosophical stance that places human beings and their capabilities at the forefront of intellectual inquiry and creative expression. The Renaissance period was a time that led to the revival of classical learning and propelled society out of the Middle Ages. TEDxCU’s 2024 theme aims to rekindle the fire of intellectual curiosity and creative exploration, drawing inspiration from an era that celebrated human potential in all its forms. TEDxCU wants to hear from community members who are blending tradition with innovation to tackle contemporary challenges in our changing world.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxCU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxCU event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
