About this event
TEDxQueensU is a brand new experience for the Queen's community. Looking to revitalize the educational experience at Queen's University, TEDxQueensU began as an interactive lecture series at the Grad Club and is now an annual idea sharing conference under the TEDx name. TEDxQueensU is a collective of people who teach each other what they know.
• To encourage curiosity and engage the imagination.
• To inspire and provoke the exchange and exploration of ideas.
• To celebrate community and dynamic thinking with creative presentations and interactive speakers.
• To foster learning and conversation through the shared pursuit of knowledge.
TEDxQueensU’s goal is to be a community-run event; partnering with students, faculty, alumni, and the surrounding Kingston community to be a catalyst for the sharing of creative and profound ideas. Through community, education and ideas, TEDxQueensU hopes to reinvigorate the imaginations of students and faculty alike.
We are building our conference around the TED mission of sharing incredible ideas. We want to use this event to showcase Queen's creativity, ingenuity, and innovation while at the same time hosting amazing speakers from around the world.
We believe in bringing together organizations and individuals who want to be change agents, supporting a platform for the transfer of remarkable thinking and ideas at a top Canadian university. We believe our work is investing in the creative and intellectual future of the Queen's community.
