Event: College of the Canyons will make its first venture into the world of TEDx with TEDxCollegeoftheCanyons, an independently organized event licensed by TED and focused on the topic of connectivity -- specifically how connected communities can increase the well-being of individuals, and as a result, improve global welfare.
TEDxCollegeoftheCanyons is being hosted by the college’s TEDx Club and presented by title sponsor COC Associated Student Government (ASG), as well as the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Young Entrepreneurship Program (YEP) and Logix Federal Credit Union.
The event will follow TED’s well-known format of 18-minute presentations from various speakers as well as other performances and demonstrations. A full schedule of the day’s event is included below.
TEDxCollegeoftheCanyons is a SOLD OUT event, with only a limited amount of ticketed seats available in the main conference area.
In addition, due to guidelines and regulations set forth by the overarching TEDx organization, media members WILL NOT BE ALLOWED to photograph or video record any of the presentations.
As a result media are invited to view a live-feed of the conference in a second non-ticketed viewing room, located just a few doors down from the main conference in Mentry Hall, Room 343.
To conclude the event a special Logix Lounge Hour is being held from 2 to 3 p.m. in Mentry Hall, Room 309.
During the Lounge Hour all conference presenters will be on hand to meet and talk with media members, as well as other conference attendees. Photography and video recording WILL BE permitted during this portion of the event.
Photos of the main TEDxCollegeoftheCanyons conference will be made available to requesting media through the COC Public Information Office.
