TEDxManipal is delighted to host its first edition of TED Circles, an exclusive virtual event, for which only selected candidates will get the opportunity to participate in enlightening discussions on this month’s captivating theme - “Imagination”. The event is scheduled for the 26th of September 2021, at 6 PM IST.
TED Circles is an open community of small groups that engage in conversations about big ideas. At a TED Circle event, participants watch a selected TED talk based on a monthly theme and share their key takeaways from the talk.
Through this fascinating concept, the organizing team aims to create a platform for the diverse student-based community at Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) to reflect, interact and connect on riveting ideas. Hosting a TED Circle event at the university town would give students from diverse fields of medicine, business, and engineering, an opportunity to exchange ideas on thought-provoking TED talks.
The faculty mentor Dr. Raghu Radhakrishnan, Director of International Collaborations, deems it an honour to be advising the team of TEDxManipal, led by Kashish Miglani and Vani Mittal who are third year undergraduate students at Manipal Institute of Technology. The special virtual event will be co-hosted and facilitated by team members - Sidesh Das, Khushi Prasad, Vaidehi Patel, Swakshi Agrawal, Kashish Miglani, Vani Mittal and Khushi Agarwal.
TED Circles will inspire individuals to broaden their existing knowledge on a myriad of topics through healthy dialogue and discussion and uphold the spirit of TED, focusing on the power of ideas.
