Watch the TEDx livestream

Watch the first ever TEDxLakeForestCollege event live this Friday from 5 to 9 pm.

TEDx is an international community that organizes TED-style events anywhere and everywhere – celebrating locally-driven ideas and elevating them to a global stage. TEDx events are produced independently of TED conferences, and each event curates speakers on their own based on TED’s format and rules.

“Curving the Straight Line” is the elected theme for the TEDxLakeForestCollege 2017 event. The theme Curving the Straight Line is a figurative representation of people who think differently. The TED & TEDx mission statement, “Ideas worth spreading,” aligns with this theme through the shared aim of giving voices to individuals with outside-of-the-box concepts or imaginative ideas. With this theme, we hope to spark conversation among speakers and audience members while providing a wide array of possible topics to be presented.

Curving the Straight Line will act as a platform for creative people to be heard loud and clear.

TEDxLakeForestCollege stage will feature some of the Lake Forest College students, faculty/staff as well as various guest speakers from one coast to the other.
