TEDxUChicago
Mandel Hall, University of Chicago, Chicago IL
TedXUChicago
The event will be centered on the theme: "Make No Little Plans," inspired by Daniel Burnham's famous line: Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir man's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. In the spirit of Burnham, the chief architect of the 1893 World's Fair, our conference will fuse the local and universal, the innovative and the neoclassical. Attendees and speakers will be able to interact and all, we hope, will be driven to creatively improve our collective future.
