A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and performances are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have features in common. TEDxSeasonsStreet is your local event in Pune.
TEDxSeasonsStreet brings a pandora box, full of unique research and experiences from 8 incomparable personalities, together to unravel the layers beneath on 7th January 2023 at the Symbiosis Auditorium, Viman Nagar.
“Human curiosity, the urge to know, is a powerful force and is perhaps the best secret weapon of all in the struggle to unravel the workings of the natural world” – Aaron Klug. That’s precisely why this event’s theme is “Unravel - the layers beneath” where seven very diverse personalities, from different walks of life, excelling in their respective ones, shall enthrall us with their wisdom.
Unraveling the Layers Beneath will inspire, empower and encourage you to begin the journey of separating the threads of your own layers so that you too can live the life and be the person of purpose that God created you to be.
