About our theme:

Moments of serendipity are unforeseen and we may never have imagined them as possible until they occur. Walking down a path and stumbling across a small cozy coffee shop. Opening your bedroom curtains to fresh snowfall. Talking to a stranger in a grocery store line about a new thing you hadn’t ever thought about. Each of these experiences where we stumble across unfamiliar pleasant things are moments of serendipity.

These special times can only happen when the gates of our minds are left open and curious to potentially fall into something unexpectedly wonderful. We are unable to force serendipity, and are only in control of how much we allow our minds to unfold. It is not something that is coincidental or scientific, but is simply meant to be.

As each speaker of TEDxCU 2023 talks, we ask you to take the leap into a moment of quietness and listening. Remove your preconceived notions and let yourself plunge into new areas of thought, profound ideas, and blissful experiences that you could never have seen coming.

We are also proud that we can keep our ticket prices low due to our generous partners both on and off campus, particularly Cultural Events Board.

Masking-We are following the guidelines of the University of Colorado Boulder. Masking is optional and we will not be checking vaccination status.
