Which comes first? The INCIPIT

The incipit are the opening words of a traditional manuscript or the beginning sequence of notes in music. Speakers at this year's TEDxPineCrestSchool will explore beginnings. Beginnings lead to endless possibilities. But everything must have a beginning. Where does your journey begin? Where does a solution to a problem begin? Where do we begin to find the answers to existential questions? How do you begin your day? Are ends really just new beginnings? Find out the answer to these questions as speakers share their stories and expertise at INCIPIT.
