The themes of previous years have been Trust and Identity, respectively. This year will be Time! We’re excited about the possibilities of this theme to explore how human beings experience their time, the science of it, how we manage it (and how it manages us sometimes), and stories of the stuff of our lives. Again, we’re gathering amazing speakers to talk on this topic from diverse angles – – in previous years, we’ve had eminent neuroscientist Paul Zak, venture capitalist Paige Craig, psychologist on Sex, Murder and the Meaning of Life Douglas Kenrick, producer of American Hipster Beau Lewis, New Yorker cover artist Eric Drooker, author of The Most Human Human Brian Christian, and the co-founder of Match.com, among others.

We try to make this an intimate and low-key event where people who are deeply interested in the topic can engage with each other on a personal level. Please come with an open mind and a sincere desire to connect with the ideas and the other attendees.

Our venue is the phenomenal classic car warehouse and winery (yes, both!) Auto-Vino. If you love one-of-a-kind fabulous cars and wine-tasting, in addition to great ideas and people, this is the TEDx for you. After we finish the speaker sessions at 4pm, we will transition to the winery counter for an optional wine-tasting flight (included in your ticket).

TEDxConstitutionDrive is a nonprofit event. Ticket fees will go towards event planning and speaker expenses. Fees cover speaker sessions, snacks, lunch and one wine-tasting flight.
