TEDxMiddlebury 2021: Back to Baseline

This year’s TEDxMiddlebury Conference will be on Saturday, May 1st, 10am – 1pm. If conditions allow, we will be hosting a mix of remote and live speakers to a live audience in the Robison Hall, Mahaney Center for the Arts in Middlebury College, as well as to the Middlebury Community over Zoom. More details forthcoming. We hope to see you there!

The theme of our event this year is “Back to Baseline.” “Back to Baseline” is about taking a step back, re-evaluating, and allowing ourselves to reach further than we ever believed we could before. It is about removing ourselves from the chaos and finding the light in overlooked places. For many of us, this past year felt like a time of set back and a call to start from scratch. But, when we are presented with a struggle, how do we reset and build anew? Sometimes the brightest inspirations and the ability to see the world in its truest form can only be found when we let go and start over.

What is TEDx?

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 TEDxMiddlebury, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMiddlebury 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. For more information, click here
