Thursday, January 18th 7-9pm (doors open at 6:30pm)
Address: 8616 National Blvd, Culver City, California 90232
With the start of the new year, let’s freshen our minds by re-examining the continuously evolving world in which we live. We will have 4-5 fascinating speakers share their viewpoints inspired by the theme “Re-Imagine.”
The speakers will talk about new ways of thinking, new perspectives, and new technologies that are needed to redefine our relationship with society to create a better world. The talks will challenge us to ask the question, how can we break away from conventional norms and re-imagine the relationship with ourselves and the world around us?
We are completely SOLD OUT for our upcoming TEDx Culver City show, but you still can watch it in real time.
