TEDxWarwick 2017: Breaking Boundaries
4th March 10:00 - 18:00 Butterworth Hall, Warwick Arts Centre

Why do Boundaries exist? Perhaps it is to limit. To protect. To control. To suffocate. It’s interesting to note that words that are synonymous with Boundaries — such as ‘barriers’, ‘partitions’ and ‘borders’ — allude to negation and disunity. Even more interesting, however, is that ‘verge’, ‘edge’ and ‘horizon’ — all possessing an optimistic connotation — are also equivalent.

In 2017, TEDxWarwick’s Breaking Boundaries celebrates the limitless. It endeavours to encompass innovative and thought-provoking ideas from a multitude of spheres through talks that go above and beyond the conventional. It aspires to carry us further than we’ve ever been, propelling us toward relentless improvement. It intends to facilitate our consciousness to accept and expand in an attempt to evolve. Why, you ask? To create. To connect. To grow. To thrive. Everything TED stands for.
