Make+Belief

We are the makers of things. Tools. Societies. Norms. Ideas. We advance through our creations in an attempt to make sense of it all. We have strong convictions, yet we can be easily swayed. Because in an age when we have the answers at our fingertips, many questions still go unexplained. And in a time of information overload, we struggle to know what is real.

Believing can be magical, beliefs can be contentious. At the crux of culture and the heart of identity, in the end, it is you who decides. What does it take to make you believe? Join us at TEDxStJohns 2015 as we explore the intersection of innovation and imagination.

TEDxStJohns 2014

Connections are everywhere. In everything. They’re there in our bodies. In nature. Connections are the very stuff of which our communities and our relationships are made. So why then, do we revel in disconnecting? Why do we find solitude the source of insight and inspiration? Can a new connection come only at the cost of an existing one?

This is the heart of TEDxStJohns 2014: Unconventional Connections.

X Challenge

To kick off our speaker announcements and lead up to the first day of ticket sales, the TEDxStJohns team is giving away a VIP Prize Pack for 2 in our latest social media contest: Xchallenge! To Enter: Take a photo of yourself making an X symbol and upload it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtags #Xchallenge and #disconnectX.
