Our Mission

In a community brimming with intellectual promise, this independently organized TEDx event will be a confluence of innovation and revolutionary ideas. TEDxBU's 2019 theme "Avant Garde" emphasizes pushing boundaries and breaking the status quo. We plan on inspiring attendees to take a risk, big or small, and provide a diverse perspective. We have invited experts in all industries, from business to art, to show that Avant Garde is not “one size fits all”. It is applicable to all aspects of one's life. This is the motivation behind TEDxBU.
