2013 TEDxBloomington “Jump In”
In 2013, the TEDxBloomington conference theme, JumpIN! put the spotlight on presenters who’ve taken Ideas Worth Spreading and moved to improve their communities and the world. INnovators, INsights, INtrigue and more presented at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on March 22, 2013! There was INspiration from a wide variety of presenters from Chicago to Tampa, from Silicon Valley to New York City … as well as a variety of voices from right here IN Bloomington! Each presenter and performer had his or her own twist on the theme.
2011 TEDxBloomington “Wisdom of Play”
“The Wisdom of Play,” our theme for TEDxBloomington in May 2011, offers the chance to explore play, wisdom, experimentation, insight, risk, horizon lines, adventure, intention, wonder, perception, curiosity, & knowledge throughout our lives.
Although the words wisdom and play may evoke opposed images and responses, this year’s TEDxBloomington conference is about the fertile ground where the two intersect in our daily lives. An amazing array of speakers will intrigue, inspire, and, we hope, ignite actions small and large to improve the world, starting with our own backyards.
The theme is intentionally open to interpretation, and we promise you, however you define “The Wisdom of Play” now, after you’ve listened to our speaker lineup, you’ll have several new definitions.
