You Are Here

TEDxBerkeley 2018 will build a map beyond the two dimensions we know, by considering a set of new axes via technology, science, culture, and social advancement. Our speakers will each begin with their place along one of these dimensions, then introduce a new story and view. With each of these views, we build a better map of the world through unconventional perspectives and untold stories. Take a moment to consider your place in each of these maps and realize that the perspective we take changes what we see. There is power to showing up. Join us in finding our marker and pinpointing our place--You are here, and so are we.
