TED is a non-profit organization devoted to Ideas worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — in more than 100 languages.
Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events, like ours (TEDxVelTech), help share ideas in communities around the world.
These local, self-organized, TED-like events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized, under a free license granted by TED.
The team behind TEDxVelTech aims at bringing the TED spirit of “ideas worth spreading” to Vel Tech Rangarajan Dr.Sagunthala R&D Institute of Science and Technology. Through this initiative we wish to bring about a change in the mindset of our community; to inspire the students to achieve more, while also creating awareness of the issues around us. More significantly, we aim to create a platform where persons from different cultural backgrounds can come forth as one, as they present their ideas.
At TEDxVelTech, we have brought together Nine speakers, who, through their ideas, will spark a deep discussion and connection among the audience.
Alchemy, the ancient practice that propelled believers to sought for ways to turn lead into gold, a quest that has captured the imagination of people for thousands of years.
Famously, Alchemy is believed to be about metal transformation. But unknown to most, Alchemy was more of spiritual science. An Alchemist was believed to have transformed himself spiritually, with the gold being a metaphor to his soul.
We, the team behind TEDxVelTech, wish to transform ourselves, not with witchcraft, but rather with questions and ideas on personal human development. Through the various speakers lined up for our event, we intend to instill in the audience the idea of being a better person, by improving themselves to be individual of substance.
“For it is impossible to create something out of nothing”; Our purpose is to understand the many ideas brought forth, to deconstruct them and to reconstruct the same for finer impacts.
The more ideas we sow, the more solutions we reap.
So join us, at TEDxVelTech, as we come together under one roof, to celebrate the joining of many minds, and to apply the laws of alchemy in finding the Elixir of our lives.
