TEDxACU 2017 IN REVIEW

Our third annual TEDxACU event, held on Friday, March 24, 2017 in Fulks Theatre, asked speakers, performers, and attendees to answer the question: "What's Next?" In our ever-connected world, the "next" challenges facing one industry inevitably impact the "next" steps taken by another in a global puzzle of ever-increasing importance. TEDxACU 2017 speakers and performers each added their voices to this conversation through a day of sharing their perspectives on "what's next" -- from art to science, history to business, and a number of points in between.

TEDxACU 2016 IN REVIEW

We hosted our second annual TEDxACU event on Saturday, February 27, 2016. The theme for the day was "20 Questions," and our 10 speakers and 4 performances (from 2 musicians, 1 poet, and a local high school string group) challenged attendees to be willing to ask -- to ask interesting, exciting, funny, and even challenging questions.
