Join your colleagues and friends for a special simulcast (on a huge screen) of several hours of the annual TED Conference where TEDtalks were created. Each year, the world's leading thinkers and doers gather for the TED conference, which many describe as the highlight of their year.
2014 marks TED's 30th anniversary, and the theme for TED2014 is simply this: "The Next Chapter." Attendees will be seeking to understand what are truly the most significant developments of the last 30 years, and applying that knowledge to understand what's ahead.
Notre Dame is one of the few universities in the world to offer this broadcast, which will be transmitted live from Vancouver, BC. Don't miss this rare opportunity to participate virtually in a TED conference.
Note: The TED2014 conference simulcast will be available only at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. This event is separate from the TEDxUND event held on Jan. 21, 2014.
