GET YOUR TICKETS FOR TEDxEMU: TEDxEMU tickets can now be purchased at emutix.com and at any EMU ticket office. Tickets are $10 (which includes admission, continental breakfast, and lunch). Anyone with an EMU ID can have the ticket fee waived at a ticket office. No online waivers. Live presentations will take place Friday, March 15 at Eastern Michigan University's Quirk Theatre. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. At TEDx events, live presenters and performers spark deep conversation and connections.

TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently on a community-by-community basis.  Each TEDx event's content and design are unique and developed independently, but all events have several common features  - TED's celebrated format: A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder - and to provoke conversations that matter. For more information visit TEDxEMU.com, find them on Facebook at fb.me/TEDxEMU or follow them @OfficialTEDxEMU.
