Epic Arts and the YIS Community

TEDx Youth@YIS

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 TEDxYouth@YIS, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@YIS event, TED Talks 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.

General Information

Theme : Back to the Future Date of Event: March 3rd, 2022 Time of Day : 5-6:30 pm

The discussion of past, present, and future is fundamental in the process of growing up. Sometimes we dwell on the past, worry about the future, and endlessly search for satisfaction with the present. The other times, we reminisce the past, contain thrill for the future, and fulfill our existence during the present. In ongoing times like the global pandemic, we collectively tend to hyper-focus on the present. Being extra cautious of reality, we forget that there is a future in front of us. This year, our TedxYouth@YIS team aimed for a theme that could provide people a sense of rejuvenating ambition; an element necessary during these difficult times. 

Our phrase for this year's TedxYouth@YIS theme is one that perfectly encapsulates the necessity for ambition during times of struggle, where the concept of "time" can be overwhelmingly complex: 

"Back to the Future" 

Tune in to see how our speakers utilize this phrase to explore the intertwined complexion of struggles and necessities. 


This year, you will be able to experience the TedxYouth@YIS event both online and in person. 
More information will be communicated soon. Don't forget to tune in!
