MARCH 29, 2014 | Louisiana State University
TEDxLSU is the premier TEDx event in Baton Rouge. Launched in 2013, TEDxLSU is a platform to bring local, regional, and statewide communities together; to spur discussion and dialogue about real issues; and to generate big ideas that will move the state of Louisiana forward, forming a better way of life for the people of our great state. As the flagship university, LSU and its Communication across the Curriculum program champions this exciting, innovative event focused on “ideas worth spreading.”
The theme for TEDxLSU 2014 is “enact.” Talks will focus on dynamic social, civic, and commercial efforts and ideas that inspire positive change for Louisiana and its citizens. The event will be held on March 29, 2014 at The Shaver Theatre on Louisiana State University’s campus in Baton Rouge, La.

This is a critical time in our community. Positive change is happening abruptly in some sectors, while it is stagnant in others. The faces, attitudes, personalities, and needs of our community are undergoing a metamorphosis. At TEDxLSU 2014, we will focus on the theme “enact” by highlighting the dynamic social, civic and commercial efforts and ideas performing within our community to foment a better way of life for the people of Louisiana.
With the intention of promoting energetic dialogue leading up to the TEDxLSU 2014 event, we encourage you to enact through inspiration, because inspiration leads to positive engagement, action, and change. You can inspire others by hosting a “Pop-Up Talk.” Here’s how they work:
Select a TED talk video that is connected to the theme “enact” and could resonate with your friends, colleagues and/or other interested audiences.
Schedule a time, date and venue for your Pop-Up Talk.
Invite folks to join you for a screening of your selected TED talk and a robust dialogue about its content as it relates to enactment within our local community.
Host your event and reap the benefits of inspiring conversation, innovation, vision, and community!
