CONNECT THE DOTS
As the world becomes increasingly complex - in information, ideas, and challenges - we often find ourselves in silos with very little extending across the divide. This feels especially relevant when we consider our communities and politics today, as it often seems like there is more that separates rather than unites us. In such a time, the bold designs of those daring enough to assemble ideas in a novel way while reaching across disciplines give us a glimpse of what a more cohesive future could hold. Our theme for this year’s TEDxJHU event was developed with the goal to celebrate and showcase a group of remarkable individuals who have challenged conventions by weaving together pieces that embody their unique vision to improve the world we live in. By harnessing the power of collaboration and creating connections that have not traditionally existed, they have developed the solutions necessary to tackle the complicated issues of our time. Whether the work is focused locally in Baltimore city or globally, we hope this theme will serve a reflection of all that has been achieved by those who have discovered common threads buried in accepted thought and possessed the persistence to pull. By questioning the boundaries which have confined us for so long, we too can join as these innovators and trailblazers connect the dots.
