experiences shaping perception
The pandemic taught us that “normal” life is something that can be lost. It’s something you can crave. The magic of the mundane was seemingly lost overnight in March of 2020. And society has been scrambling to define a “new normal” ever since.
But what is “normal?” How do you describe “typical?” If you’re like most people, it’s defined by culture. By what isn’t abnormal.
This September, TEDxOklahomaCity is exploring these ideas. Our theme, Normall, dives into the diversity that creates our perception of what normal is and what it isn’t.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Our event is called TEDxOklahomaCity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxOklahomaCity event,
TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
