Quantum Connections

What does the theme Quantum Connections mean? It was selected to evoke wonder, encourage stopping and reconsidering the world within and around us, and to promote deeper thinking about things we take for granted or perhaps never actually considered at all. The event will invite us to explore ideas or concepts around causality and chaos, the relationships and connections around and within us, reframing the connections between some and all things including the seen and unseen, synchronicities and symbiotics of our macro- and micro-realities.

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 TEDxSnoIsleLibraries, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSnoIsleLibraries event, TED Talks 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.
