TEDxMarshallU 2024: Connecting Threads

Our Theme

Plot points tied together on a storyboard. Weaving strands of color into tapestries and clothing. The web of nerves sparking under our skin. Crafting a network of people to handle the challenges of the future. All of these—and more—are what we at TEDxMarshallU reference by our theme “Connecting Threads,” a title inspired by Marshall University’s HLC Quality Initiative theme of “Building Bridges.” 

Guided by our speakers, we hope to unravel the many questions surrounding connection. From the individual to the community, what really holds us together? How can we stay connected in a world plagued by division and borders? And why do we even care about all these threads surrounding us? Let’s find out together on February 27th, 2024, at the Joan C. Edwards Playhouse.
