THREADS UNDONE

WE AS A SOCIETY OFTEN SEE THINGS IN BLACK AND WHITE OR RIGHT AND WRONG. IN DOING SO, IT HAS CREATED TENSION IN MANY FORMS. OUR GOAL IS TO BRING FORTH NEW IDEAS, EXPERIENCES, AND RESEARCH THAT WILL LOOSEN SOME OF THE TENSION BETWEEN OUR CONFLICTING BELIEFS TO UNRAVEL A NEW APPROACH THAT WILL INSPIRE A NEW WAY OF THINKING.

 

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 TEDxCSULB, WHERE X = INDEPENDENTLY ORGANIZED TED EVENT. AT OUR TEDxCSULB EVENT, TEDTALKS 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.
