TEDx in collaboration with Lady Shri Ram College for Women is organizing an event on 13th September, bringing in speakers from various strides of life. TED, an American not-for-profit organization sets up guest lectures for masses with people who have innovative ideas and events. TEDx is a typical example of franchise where it gives various institutes the license to organize such events under its banner.
Being the first TEDx event in LSR, the college is all geared up to make it a huge and successful event. Some of the speakers are Mihir Srivastava, who’ll be talking about nude art, Shreena Thakore, the Co-founder of No Country for Women and many other esteemed speakers, coming from Bangalore and USA. The aim of the event is to sensitise people on small issues and ideas which don’t strike us in every day lie, despite the fact that they are so prevalent.
The idea of planning and executing such an event basically germinated from the Psychology department’s Book Club which conceptualized this idea. The logistics of the entire event have been properly worked out with 100 people attending this talk including students and guests. The idea behind restricting the gathering to 100 is that everyone should get an opportunity to interact and absorb to the fullest.
Anupriya Jain, the primary licensee and lead organizer said, “Organizing the event introduced me to some great yet unsung ideas. Working towards a TEDx event really gets you in touch with a group of intellectuals”
All those people who won’t be able see the talk live can watch the video online on YouTube. For more information about the event check their site: www.tedxlsrcollege.in
