TEDxNormal 2016 will take place October 22, 2016 from 8am – 4pm

at the Normal Theater.

Watch in 360 here!


You might ask, “What is normal?”

For our community and our event, we say “It’s anything but!”


Our Theme

Our theme is Anything But Normal!

There is the normal way most people think about and interact with life. Then there is the way instigators,  disruptors, troublemakers, and change agents do it. Those are the stories we highlight.

Our Goal

We want to start conversations about new approaches to life’s opportunities and challenges.

More importantly, we want to ignite small changes that have huge ripple effects.

Our Challenge

Don’t be normal. Don’t act normal. ┬áDon’t think normally.

We challenge you to do something different today. Break your routine. Give when you would normally take. Pause when you would normally rush.
