ABOUT OUR 2018 Conference


Colors enter our world through many different mediums and are applied in an infinite number of ways. They appear in the food prepared for us, in the movements we fight for, in the skin tone of our neighbors, and in professions that surprise us.

Our 2018 conference, TEDxUNC: Colors looks to better understand the ways in which humans interpret, see, and experience color.

About Us

TEDxUNC is a conference for big ideas: for the dreamers, for the innovators, and for the creatives. We hope to inspire UNC and the greater Chapel Hill community to think and discuss these ideas through a TED-style conference. TEDxUNC is held every February in Memorial Hall, and we hope to see you at the next one!
