The University of Manitoba hosts a very diverse community with talents in multiple disciplines. Showcasing the spirit of our unique community, TEDxUManitoba created a space where we can discuss, debate and draw attention to all the great work being done at U of M. TEDxUManitoba is committed to spreading powerful ideas that use technology, entertainment or Design in ways that challenge the status quo. It serves as a platform for presenting the work done by the best thinkers and doers at the University of Manitoba and Winnipeg’s community at large.

The theme for this year’s inaugural event is “RECHARGE". Selecting this theme helped us rethink our approach to the different topics presented at this event.
