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 TEDxHilliard, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxHilliard event, live speakers, musicians and artists will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Think of TEDxHilliard as an awesome dinner party, with great food, inspirational performances, brilliant speakers and mind-blowing conversation. By joining us for the event, you will have the opportunity to be a part of a truly unique event that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform. The theme for 2018 is Pathways! The human experience is a journey. A journey filled with pathways – some straight and predictable, others curvy and challenging. Some pathways lead us to new experiences, while others help us achieve something more. Each sector has a slightly different meaning of a pathway. In science or medicine, a pathway is a chain of reactions associated with a particular metabolic process. A learning pathway is a specific course of action that helps the learner progress in their education. In general, pathways are critical for all professional and personal growth. If we pay attention, the experiences, challenges or questions that arise for each of us have the potential to change the trajectory of our work and life. To change or guide our pathways, TEDxHilliard 2018 will highlight the experiences, challenges, questions, and pathways that lead to innovation, new products, better community relations, or a deeper understanding of the human condition. List of speakers will be available on the website on April 15, 2018.
