THEME for 2016: “WHAT IF…. Reframing the Possible“.
What might be our new normal? This year, TEDxMarin poses the question: “What If…”, to better explore the unexpected possibilities and bold ideas that may fundamentally shift our future. Once again, we will bring forward pioneering individuals representing powerful ideas of change. Whether it’s the search for meaning, joy, profession or purpose, or a desire to innovate and address global and cultural issues, TEDxMarin 2016 looks to inspire and illuminate our Marin community with thought-provoking ideas reframing our vision of what’s possible.
