TEDxIndianaUniversity presents “Playground”, our seventh annual TEDx conference. We invite the Bloomington and Indiana University communities to join us for our first evening back on a live stage in two years. Seven speakers from across the country will share their stories and perspectives, united by a desire to spread ideas worth sharing. 

 

“Playground” is meant to give audience members and conference speakers the chance to reflect and walk down memory lane. Many of us spent a lot of time on playgrounds as children, exploring both the good and bad elements of the world around us -- often for the first time. Our conference seeks to ask: has that period ever truly ended? Did we ever truly lose the ability to see the world through the lens of pure imagination?

 

Playgrounds are places of imagination, exploration, and wonder.

 

“Playground” is a night of remembrance and rediscovery. 

 

SPEAKER LINEUP 

We are to host five unique speakers from across the country to share their diverse, powerful stories.

MEET THE TEAM 

The amazing teams behind the plan, prep, and execution of each conference and salon. 

Behind each TEDxIndianaUniversity event is an organization of people dedicated to the spreading of ideas. Each team - Curation, Finance, Marketing, Membership, Operations, and Production - work tirelessly throughout the year to foster community within the org, as well as throughout IU and Bloomington. In the photos above you will find our weekly All-Staff meetings, a great day at First Thursday (featuring President Whitten!), and us volunteering at My Sister's Closet

This year's conference, Playground, is a cumulation of months of perseverance and passion to deliver an experience with filled with learning, networking, and hopefully some childhood reminiscing to your days on the playground.
