After providing answers to the Vincentian question “what must be done,” TEDx will return to DePaul University April 18, 2017 with presentations touching on the theme “courage to connect.” 

Created by TED, the nonprofit responsible for viral TED Talks videos focusing on topics ranging from creativity in schools to the power of introverts, the TEDx Program supports “independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community.”

The TEDx DePaul team is searching for members of the DePaul community able to speak, perform and contribute to the TED Talks goal of sharing “ideas worth spreading.” All members of DePaul’s community, which includes students, faculty and staff, are encouraged to apply for the April event and are encouraged to interpret the theme creatively. 

Those interested in being a speaker or performer at DePaul’s TEDx event can apply online until Jan. 16 by 5 p.m. at http://bit.ly/TEDxSpeakerApplication_2017
