ARTiculate ushers in an exciting bunch of high achieving artists. Each one of them is carefully picked after much deliberation as they have made quite a name for themselves in their respective fields. But what makes them truly unconventional is the fact that they are all from Engineering and Medical backgrounds!
They'll talk about their lives and how they made the successful transition from one field to another, the overlaps and contradictions in the two worlds, and most exciting of all, they'll answer your questions!

TEDxGEC Salon: Emancipation of Education
The first TEDxGECSalon event was held on 21st April 2017 and was themed ‘Emancipation of Education’. A Salon event is similar to a standard event but with the inclusion of group discussions. The TEDx team took the decision to feature an equal number of teachers and students to engage in the discussion about the academics, campus, events, and prevailing culture in GEC.
The first ever TEDxGEC event was held on 16th of August 2016. The event began with a talk by Kanan Tandi, a certified practitioner from Centre for Body Language and director of Body Speaks Better. This talk was followed by Gaurav Padte’s inspiring speech. The third act was presented by Mrs Marietta D’Souza who is a practicing counsellor and psychiatrist. he final performance for the day was by Somu Rao, who ended the event on a very high note with an extremely insightful and bold talk about debunking superstitions and black magic.

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 TEDxGEC, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGEC event, TEDTalks 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.
Our Mission at TEDx GEC
TEDxGEC aims to create impact and change through its talks and inspire the local student community. It is a festival of ideas that will be celebrated with enthusiasm, curiosity and amazement.
