Theme: Here Be Dragons

Denton, TX, United States
April 26th, 2014

About this event

On early maps, uncharted territories and open oceans would be marked with an illustration of a dragon accompanied by the words, “here be dragons”- a warning to explorers of the dangers that lurk in the unfamiliar. TEDxUNT is challenging our speakers and audience to explore what waits just outside the established and familiar to illuminate opportunity in the unknown.
