Roots + Innovation

Our Philosophy

In a city that is now a conflagration of electric ideas, motion pictures and a fast paced lifestyle,we at TEDxSIESCASC believe in the idea of our roots - an identity that we carry around. Where the trend is going global, we bring to you ideas of change and innovation - stories and ideas that have spent years in incubation - that are deep rooted


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSIESCASC, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSIESCASC event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. More information on this can be found here.
