The same TEDxUofT magic, bite-sized.
A Salon is a more intimate TEDx event that dives deeply into one subject area. The TEDxUofTSalon: Artful Resolutions will feature 4 speakers working at the intersection of computer science and art. As one of 100 curious attendees, you will be invited to interact with the speakers and with your fellow guests to discuss the ideas presented, ask questions, and explore the theme from different viewpoints. Experience an evening of ideas worth sharing, engage in lively discussions about the topics at hand, and create a deeper connection to the TEDxUofT community.
