What is TEDx?

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, “Ideas Worth Spreading." A TEDx event is organized by volunteers from the local community. The program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversations and connections through local, TED-like experiences. At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level.

About TED x SCAC

The second edition of the independently organized TED event at the Symbiosis College of Arts & Commerce aims to bring together notable speakers & captivating performances to enlighten upon the proposed theme, U.R.G.E. - UNCOVER. REFLECT. GROW. EVOLVE

We reckon that the event should be established on the pillars of a multidisciplinary approach that involves drawing discussions from multiple disciplines to redefine problems outside normal boundaries and reach to conclusions based on a new understanding of complex situations.
