Welcome to TEDxUofM!
Bringing inspiration, discovery, excitement, and a TED-like experience to stages near the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor, to showcase the most fascinating thinkers and doers – the “leaders and best” in Michigan terms.
Our annual TEDxUofM conference will take place on February 22nd, 2019, in the Power Center for Performing Arts in Ann Arbor!
Upcoming – TEDxUofM Salon: Living with Disabilities
December 3rd, 2018; 6 PM to 8 PM
North Quad, Room 2435
Disability is not a bad word.
Often times, our questions about what life is like when living with a disability go unanswered, because we're afraid of the topic. TEDxUofM's goal with this fantastic event, timely held on the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, is to give our community a space for open dialouge to learn about disabilities, help remove stigmatisms, and better understand the people who live with them beyond their disability.
Our Salon will feature two TED talks and will host a panel of University of Michigan faculty, staff, and students with disabilities and/or who work in the field. They will share their stories with the audience and answer a few of their questions as well during an interactive portion of the night.
This event is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
