Do I Dare?

So many of us feel trapped.

Trapped by expectations, by insecurities, by fears.

The theme of our fourth annual TEDxPaceAcademy event - Do I Dare? - challenges students to reflect on ways in which they dare greatly.

Inspired by T. S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," in the fall of 2023, the Pace community will congregate to dare to eat a peach and, in so doing, disturb the universe with the power of stories and the courage of vulnerability.

What is TEDx?

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 TEDxPaceAcademy, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPaceAcademy 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. Learn more about TEDx here
