TEDxUNC: Colorwheel will challenge audience members to rethink their notion of a black and white world and embrace a more nuanced and colorful understanding of humanity, taking into account the amazing diversity found across disciplines and cultures.
The conference will begin in the binary, wherein the world is seen as black or white. Speakers will discuss the problem with using this binary lens and provide a call to action to lift our collective consciousness. The conference will then introduce the invention of color (literally and metaphorically) as an alternative to the binary. Speakers will discuss how the invention or insertion of a color into their lives has changed their perception of the world. The conference will end with the exploration of the colorwheel. Speakers will cover multiple disciplines, in which the world is viewed with nuance and a diversity of expressions are accepted and celebrated.
