TEDxIndianaUniversity presents “Entropy,” our fifth annual TEDx conference.

A speaker onstage next to a TEDx sign addresses a full theater of people

We invite the Bloomington and Indiana University communities to join us for a transformative evening as we explore and share ideas for our collective future. Artists and explorers, thinkers and doers from within our local community and from as far as the UK will share the stage to present eight live TEDx talks.

About the event
“Entropy” signifies a lack of order or predictability. In scientific terms, it is natural for our universe to move towards disorder. But it is through our ability to harness chaos, fight against it, and make sense of it, that we are able to give meaning to our lives and our ideas.

New ideas are not born from the minds of single individuals. They are ignited and molded in communities, where people from different backgrounds come together to share, understand, and find paths forward. We hope to provide you with this starting point for your ideas through a night of diverse TEDx talks, engaging activities, and powerful conversation.

The speaker lineup will be released on the TEDxIndianaUniversity social media and website over the course of the coming weeks.

About TEDx
TEDx events are locally organized and unconventional conferences. They are designed not simply as lectures, but as immersive and memorable experiences. 

Doors will open at 5:30pm for this general admission event, which is expected to last about 3 hours. Ticket Policies: Students at any institution may purchase a ticket at the student price. Please be prepared to show your student ID when entering the event.
