The theme for TEDxUW 2017 is "Defying Conventions". It's easy to settle into a routine and go along with the status quo but in doing that, we start to place limitations on ourselves and our surroundings. It shapes how we see the world; through a biased lens that causes our views and opinions to become polarized. This year, we want to challenge you to go against the grain, to become comfortable with being uncomfortable, and to step out of our little bubble to see things through a different lens.
TEDxUW 2017 will be held on Saturday, October 28th 2017, at the University of Waterloo. Applications are due Friday, September 29th.
Please note that this is a high demand, ticketed event. If you are selected, you will receive the opportunity to advance purchase your ticket.
