TEDxUW 2020: Press Play

October 31 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us at TEDxUW 2020: Press Play on Saturday, October 31st, 2020 from 12 pm – 4 pm.

About this Event

In the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth sharing”, TEDxUW cordially invites you to our very first virtual conference featuring notable speakers and live interactive events.


Press Play

You’re a moviegoer. You’re a gamer. You breathe music. You can recite your favorite TV shows as if they’re your second nature. Whatever your creative harbor is, we share one exhilarating, common experience together. Press Play is the last barrier remaining between you and a new adventure. No matter what stage of life you are in, we propose that now is the time where we focus on the root of our actions and allow it to transform our lives.

Prepare to Press Play at TEDxUW 2020.
