Event description

Description

The Fulbright Association and the National Capital Area Chapter of the Fulbright Association are proud to present TEDxFulbright 2017 - A Curious Picture.

The Fulbright Association and NCAC will host speakers for TEDxTalks crafted in the spirit of "ideas worth spreading" in Washington, DC this June.

The event will be free and open to alumni, current grantees, and friends, though donations toward the cost of organisation and refreshments would be greatly appreciated!

The theme of the event is "A Curious Picture." The world has changed since Senator J. William Fulbright made this comment:

“What a curious picture it is to find man […] seriously considering going underground to escape the consequences of his own folly. With a little wisdom and foresight, surely it is not yet necessary to forsake life in the fresh air and in the warmth of sunlight."

TEDxFulbright will explore this theme through a half-day interdisciplinary conference for Fulbright alumni and internationally-minded members of the public. The event will be organized by the Fulbright Association, National Capital Area Chapter. Additional co-organizers include the New York Film Academy.
