In the spirit of "ideas worth spreading," Carnegie Mellon University students will host their inaugural TEDxCMU event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday, April 4 in the University Center’s McConomy Auditorium. This year’s theme is "Fearless."

Approximately 450 individuals selected through an application process have been invited to participate in the event. The talks will be streamed live at http://tedxcmu.com/watch and archived on TEDx’s YouTube channel. The event will feature a full day of talks by prominent speakers such as:

- Raghava KK (Multi-disciplinary Artist)
- Jonathan Fields (Blogger / Entrepreneur)
- Stacey Monk (Founder, Epic Change)
- Chase Jarvis (Photographer / Social Artist)
- Chris Guillebeau (World Traveler / Writer)

- RF Culbertson (Professor and Entrepreneur)

TEDxCMU will also feature performances by Carnegie Mellon's Dancer's Symposium Company and first-year design major Jackson Chu, who will play a Chinese instrument called the erhu. We hope to spark discussions and foster connections between participants at TEDxCMU, and encourage people to follow their dreams and make a difference.
