Logan Center Performance Hall
The University of Chicago
In years past, the conference has been centered around themes such as making no little plans, putting theory into action, and creating revolutions. This year, we are diving into the unexplored and undiscovered at TEDxUChicago 2015: The Incredible Unknown. Inspired by the famous quote associated with renowned astronomer and UChicago alumnus Carl Sagan, this year’s conference will showcase a selection of speakers who dared to venture beyond the ordinary to reveal findings and discover solutions to unanswered questions. Like Sagan and his extraordinary scientific achievements, our speakers and attendees will be encouraged to escape the everyday and defy odds by discovering ideas and possible solutions to the many unknowns of the world today.
This year, we will be moving from our previous home at Mandel Hall to the brand-new Performance Hall at the Logan Center for the Arts. A spectacular 470-seat performance space, we plan on providing a space that further encourages intimate and inspiring conversations amongst all attendees.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUChicago, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUChicago event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
