Deconstructing the Theme
The theme for this year’s TEDx TRU event is ‘Acknowledge. Deconstruct. Empower.’
If you are wondering what was the thought process behind this, read on to find out.
It’s good to be alive in a world where people have the right to freedom of speech and expression. But we often forget how powerful our voice is. When a voice is heard, its message is fully acknowledged and accepted, it has the power to create an impact and bring change. Therefore, we want to open the conversation and provide a platform for the people to voice their thoughts and share their stories that will foster a positive change. By doing this we are also challenging the status quo.
Our aim is not just to understand a different point of view of people but also to reach the crux of the matter by deconstructing the facts. Once the facts are laid out it takes courage to accept them and do something constructive. Through this, we want to provide people with means and tools necessary to look at things in a different light.
Only when we stop scratching the surface and push ourselves to go beyond, we shall be able to empower others to be fearless. The whole process of overcoming your inhibitions or societal constraints can be liberating. We want to set people on this journey that will provide them support to face and overcome their fears and explore their potential.
So, if you feel that you have an idea that is unique and empowering, here’s a chance for you to voice your story. Through TEDx you will get a chance to reach out to a global community and help others grow and become fearless.
