Today is the day!
Tonight, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Concordia’s first ever TED X event will be held. The event will include nine awesome speaker who are related to Concordia in some way or another. Each speaker will talk on an experience they have gone through. All of the talks will be related to the theme PIVOT. According to the TED student planning committee pivot involves, “transformative moments that challenge the familiar and inspire action.” Many speakers will talk about moments in their lives that have challenged them to pivot onto a new life path.
I am very excited for the event since I will be working as a volunteer. I am a part of the Photography and Media group. Here I will be working with a lot of the social media components of the event.
The event will be held in Barry Auditorium, and it will last until 9:30 p.m., and it will include a break for horderves. The event sold out completely this year, but if you were not able to snag a ticket it’s no problem. You can watch all of the TED talks from the comfort of your own home- or dorm. The even twill be live streamed through USTREAM- check it out here!.
