TEDxFSCJ is a full-day event being curated by Dr. Paul Hendrickson and a select committee of FSCJ students and staff. Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter. This year TEDxFSCJ aims to ENGAGE. Our theme is both a statement of our intent to engage with ideas, social issues, and various Jacksonville communities and a challenge to our audience to take the next step after the event to truly engage with what they’ve heard. We hope to draw speakers who will increase our knowledge, ignite our passions, or broaden our experience of the world.
In order to highlight our theme, TEDxFSCJ put together an art show featuring portraits of people – students, faculty, staff, and Jacksonville community members – who are deeply invested in making a difference. These portraits will be featured at the Faces of Engagement art show leading up to our main event on October 8th as well as on www.tedxfscj.com, and will draw attention to those who voluntarily engage to make our world a better place.
