TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences. This is a TEDx event, where “x” stands for “independently organized event”.
TEDxLakeArtemesia is an event where members from various backgrounds come to share their promising ideas with the College Park and DC metropolitan community and inspire diverse individuals to perceive the world in unique and extraordinary ways. The theme is “Swim Against the Current” representing the idea that through some combination of perseverance, risk-taking, and a willingness to both learn and be taught that great ideas can be formed.
The TEDxLakeArtemesia event revolves around this fundamental mission to spark change within our community, with a focus on young professionals.
