TEDxUCCI-logo-FB“What would you do if you had no fear?”

That’s the question that will be examined from multiple viewpoints on April 24th when TEDxUCCI takes place on the campus at the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI). And the time to apply for a seat at that discussion is rapidly drawing to a close on Monday, April 13th.

The vision of this day-long event of discussion, dance and music is to inspire people to step out of their comfort zones, think innovatively, and exchange ideas fearlessly. According to TEDxUCCI curator, Dr. J.D. Mosley-Matchett, “We’re excited that this celebration of ideas is really being student-run and student-led. This event is being designed from the ground up to be a way to enrich the UCCI community and its supporters in a way that can reach a global audience. Many TEDx presentations have gone viral, in part due to the power of this amazing brand.”

Presentations at this first-ever UCCI event will range from environmental concerns, personal experiences, singing, dancing, and inspirational stories. The roster of speakers is available online at www.TEDxUCCI.ky

Anyone interested in being an active audience member during this daylong event on April 24th is encouraged to apply at www.TEDxUCCI.ky with applications being accepted through Monday, April 13th. Only 75 participants will be accepted to be part of this experience, so the public is encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

In part, it’s the exclusive nature of TEDx events that makes them so interesting. As Dr. Mosley-Matchett notes, “We expect to generate a lot of buzz simply because not everyone will be able to experience this first TEDxUCCI. The people who attend will be active participants in a thought provoking environment.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a programme of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).
