Some lives become stories that are told and retold with a new flair every time. In moving the margins, we look at lives that have not just thought, out-of-the- box, but have redefined the very process of thinking.
We are exhibiting Moving the Margins through ground breaking contributions of those illustrious personalities that have changed the very fabric of contemporary society and posits to change the shape of human civilization.
We announce with TEDxMITSG that margins can no longer be marginalised.
TED-Technology, Entertainment, Design is a non-profit media organization which posts videos of powerful talks online, for free distribution, under the slogan ideas worth spreading, ideas which are known to change perspectives and provide food for thought.TED was founded in February 1984 as a conference, which has been held annually since 1990. TED's early emphasis was technology and design, but it has since broadened its focus to include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics.
TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TEDs overall mission to research and discover ideas worth spreading TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe via rules and tools.
TEDx events are organized by passionate individuals who seek to uncover new ideas and the latest research in their local areas and spark conversations in their communities. TEDx events include live speakers and recorded TED Talks, and are organized independently under a free license granted by TED.
At TEDxMITSG, we are aspiring to reach for the sky, grab a star and bring Enlightenment. We are aspiring to crack the glass ceiling, and let light illuminate us. We are aspiring to move the margins. In a world where uniformity and conventions have long ruled, TEDxMITSG has an assemblage that has forayed into terra-incognita and made an indelible mark for themselves.
