We have exciting news!

In addition to our yearly spring TEDx event: This year we, in conjunction with Students as Scholars at Mason, will host smaller events which will focus on discussing TED talks, and research, creative insights, & new ideas at George Mason University. Before our season kicks off we are holding an intro event NEXT FRIDAY (11/1/13) 7:30pm in Mason Hall RM D023 (the event will likely last just under an hour & a half). At this event: attendees will watch the team's favourite talks, and have a discussion about them. The goal is to get a group of people who are interested in sharing, and then debating, new ideas.

If the interest exists: We will work on developing these into full 'TEDxSalon' events. Those events would have student & faculty/staff speakers, as well as official TED Talks.

Next Friday's event will be free, but RSVP's are required. The RSVP form will be available around 2pm on 10/24/13 (Thursday). We expect to fill up quickly, so please be sure to RSVP as soon as the system is up!

What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGeorgeMasonU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGeorgeMasonU event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
