This event occurred as part of the 20/21 Hop Hosted season. This is an archived view.

Six speakers invite us to reimagine the world through new, challenging and cross-disciplinary ideas—in short, "ideas worth spreading."

20/21 Hop Hosted

Planned and executed entirely by undergraduate volunteers, TEDxDartmouth is a conference that offers a platform for new, challenging, and cross-disciplinary ideas—in short, "ideas worth spreading."

The next few months, years and decades will require everyone to "Reimagine" the world around us. Change in the ways that we communicate, interact and consume content will only continue to evolve and adapt to new obstacles, challenges and technological advancements. At this year's TEDxDartmouth conference, our speakers will connect you to ideas, innovations and experiences that will encourage you to reimagine.

A philosophy major who packed up his life and visited 59 national parks in 59 weeks. An artist and photographer whose portraits make space for trauma and loss. A leadership coach who considers inspiration a vital tool for success. These are only a few of the ideas that will grace the TEDx virtual stage on May 15—our lineup of six speakers were carefully selected to challenge, educate and inspire our audience around our 2021 theme, "Reimagine."  

An in-person student watch party starts in the Hitchcock tent at 10am. Refreshments will be provided! Dartmouth polices apply regarding masks, social distancing and audience capacity.

Darius Nabors
In 2016, Darius completed a trip to visit all 59 US National Parks in 59 weeks and celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. During that time he started taking 360 photos of our country's National Parks. Those photos now have over 40-million views and he uses them to take school children and the elderly on virtual tours of our National Parks. At TEDx Dartmouth he is going to take us on a virtual tour to visit some of our country's greatest natural treasures.

Mariangela Abeo
Mariangela Abeo (they/them) is a Mental Health Advocate, Speaker, Podcast Host, Producer and Photographer + Creator of the Faces of Fortitude movement. Inspired by personal heartbreak, the movement began as a project consisting of a series of portraits documenting the healing of those affected by suicide. The portraits caught fire online and Mariangela quickly saw a need for a safe space for others to share their stories of loss and trauma. In addition to exhibitions, podcasts and books, they travel the country to capture portraits of those affected by the epidemic in any way (be it loss, attempt or first responders) as a step towards their healing, and to educate people as both a mental health advocate and a suicide loss and attempt survivor.
