TEDxYDL 2017: Interdependence poster

TEDxYDL is organized by the Ypsilanti District Library and sponsored by Halle Library at Eastern Michigan University.

This year’s event will center on the theme of “Interdependence.” The event will feature great stories and big ideas that touch on the many ways that people, organisms, and ideas depend on each other and make each other stronger. Our speakers span a variety of disciplines and backgrounds, each representing one of the many interdependent and often-untold stories that make our community great.

What is TEDx?

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 TEDxYDL, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYDL event, TEDTalks video and live speakers 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.
