Tickets for the 2017 TEDxUNO event, "Juxtaposition", are on sale now. The theme of the event this year is "Juxtaposition." We will be highlighting ideas that present two or more seemingly contradictory or different aspects into a cohesive, interesting story. Imagine talks where two people are tackling one issue from different perspectives such as terrorism, disease, marriage, communication, activism, and music.

The event will be noon to 6 p.m. Feb. 18 at the Strauss Performing Arts Center on the UNO campus. The cost for tickets is $25. UNO students can purchase tickets at a discounted rate of $10.

The past two years have been sold out events, so be sure to get your tickets early! To purchase tickets, view the line up of speakers, or learn more, visit www.TEDxUNO.com.


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUNO, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxUNO event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
