TEDxUGA 2018

Thursday, March 22nd
7pm to 10pm 
The Classic Center Theatre

Join the University of Georgia for the sixth annual TEDxUGA – CONNECT 2018. Our world is made up of connections—an intricate web built from the ties of biology and the wires of technology. At the University of Georgia, we’ve found that the remarkable can happen when unexpected connections occur: paths cross, forces combine, people collaborate, and new ideas come alive. The most powerful connections are the ones we never see coming.  At TEDxUGA 2018, we will explore the stories, experiences, and ideas that emerge when things connect.
