our september 30 event

Find out more about the speakers of these talks in their bio's listed below.

With technology advancing, explorations booming, and discoveries developing, many people have come to the thought that there is not much left to uncover in the world. But what about the mysteries that still go unsolved? The challenges that we, as a population, have rendered invisible? The possibilities of pasts we have forgotten and a future we do not yet know? In TEDxUWMilwaukee's 4th annual fall conference, we strive the Reveal these Unknowns with 10 local presenters who have been selected to explore a wide array of topics.
On September 30th, 2017, our community will come together in the UW-Milwaukee Helene Zelazo Center for the full-day TEDxUWMilwaukee conference of live TEDx talks, interactive art, and discussion.


Conference 2016

I Am. We Are.

According to Jean-Luc Nancy, there is no “being” without “being-with”. In fact, “being-with” is redundant, as we are all, always already together, in relation, a community. We are all “people,” all of a similar kind: a doctor, a guy, a woman, a kid… But no one person defines all it means to be a people, and “people” can never represent even one specific individual. We are, rather, a community that performs ourselves, together and apart. What we are, and what we could be. I am. We are.
