In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSCAC, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxSCAC event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
The very first independently organised TED event at the Symbiosis College of Arts & Commerce brings to you a host of notable speakers and a captivating performance, under the theme, ‘Embracing Uncertainty.’
The quality of abstraction being an essential attribute of a theme, we chose “Embracing Uncertainty” as ours because it signifies many different perspectives across people of all ages and fields, be it how a few seconds can change the color of a medal for a sportsperson, how the momentary lapse of judgment can mean life or death to a soldier or how having the faith to risk it all for a passion turned out to be a game changer for a well settled middle aged man.
Little do we understand that uncertainty is an existential constant. To be in control, to ascertain, to know the unknown is in our nature. Encouraged by an endless curiosity and drive to predict and assume, we tend to forget that the charm of life resides in steering your ship through uncharted waters, not knowing everything yet having faith, being clueless yet at peace with the unknown, open to the journey that the nomadic winds take you on.
