TEDxGrandRapids presents TED Live hosted by Frederik Meijer Honors College
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 11:30 AM (EST)
Grand Rapids, MI
TED Live is a full day live stream of the Long Beach, California TED Talks from TED2013. Please join us for conversation and inspiration on Wednesday, February 27th.
ONLY 75 seats are available in the Steelcase Foundation Lecture Hall of the GVSU Center for Health Sciences in downtown Grand Rapids for each TED Talk session.
If you would like to attend please register. We ask that you come with the intention to fully engage the event and stay for one session, or all sessions, and engage the other attendees in conversation during the breaks. It is the community that is formed at TEDx events that make them special.
Sessions are from 11:30-1:15, 2:00-3:45, 5:15-7:00, and 8:00-9:45. During the day, refreshments will be provided. Please feel free to bring your own brown bag lunch.
- You can find information about the speakers at: http://conferences.ted.com/TED2013/program/guide.php#Wednesday,February27,2013
Parking passes will be provided for all non-GVSU students on a first come first serve basis. These passes will be for the upper lot and Lafayette lot. Parking at these lots are very limited. A parking pass will be sent to your email if requested during registration. Please see the image below for the location of lots.
Because parking is limited, we are encouraging entendees to take the bus. If you are a GVSU student, you can take the 50 to the stop on the corner of Lake Michigan Drive and Steward, then get on the Dash to the Hill (Bus 51) to CHS.
- You can find more information about Dash routes and stops at: http://grcity.us/enterprise-services/Parking-Services/PublishingImages/DASH%20Map.pdf
CHS is located at the top right hand corner of this map. A picture of CHS is below.

When & Where
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGrandRapids, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGrandRapids event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
TEDxGrandRapids is an indpendently organized TED event.
