About this event
TEDxDU 2011 was an amazing event! Thank you to our attendees, speakers, performers and everyone who worked hard to make this a successful celebration of Radical Collaboration. We are hard at work editing the videos from the event, and will post them as soon as possible to this site. In the mean time, please share your photos and feedback with us on facebook.com/tedxdu.
TEDxDU is a celebration of DUing. The event showcases leaders who are taking action to improve our world across a broad spectrum of disciplines from science to art to entrepreneurship. We’re building our 2011 event around the idea of “radical collaboration” — the mash-up of unlikely groups, ideas, inspiration or research that can propel an idea forward faster than anyone could do alone. . Global collaboration IS our future.
