TEDxConnecticutCollege is a local, independently organized event at Connecticut College that strives to re-create the unique experience found at TED, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers congregate to share what they are most passionate about. We aim to provide a platform where the smartest thinkers, greatest visionaries, and most fascinating teachers will be inspired and will have the opportunity to inspire others in our community. Our conference will be held at Evans Hall at Connecticut College on Saturday, April 14, 2012 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and will be centered on the theme of “Rethinking Progress.” The diverse group of students, faculty, alumni, and members of the community that will make up the audience will be able to learn from one another, both as speakers and as participants, and will leave the conference driven to creatively improve our collective future.
Our speakers include an architect, an extreme sports photographer, a sustainable foodie, a cancer researcher, a non-verbal theater group, a filmmaker and more.
