Dissonance involves a clash—of musical notes, of ideas, of beliefs. Sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes ugly, sometimes simply unpleasant. But, those who listen closely may find value and true beauty in dissonance: the cacophony of two notes juxtaposed with the harmony that follows, two unlike ideas which force us to question our established beliefs. TEDxPurdueU invites you to join us at our virtual event, “Dissonance,” and discover the ways in which dissonance enriches our lives and challenges us.
TEDxPurdueU invites you to join us on the journey to discover all the ways in which dissonance enriches our lives and challenges us at our virtual main event, Dissonance. TEDxPurdueU, an independently organized chapter of TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), presents Dissonance, a livestream conference event that nurtures a culture of innovation by sharing ideas developed by Purdue students, faculty, alumni and community members to the global TED community. Speakers from diverse schools of thought will address the Dissonance theme through the lenses of history, science, education, the arts, engineering, business and technology, sparking deep discussion and interconnection among our community of lifelong learners.
The theme of this year’s event is DISSONANCE. Confirmed speakers include:
