CARL SAGAN
ABOUT THE PROJECT

As the organizer and curator of TEDxUChicago 2015, I was responsible for curating the day’s events. This included coming up with our speaking lineup, coaching and preparing speakers, curating the various sessions throughout the day, and managing board members and ensuring the event went smoothly.

In additional to managerial duties, I also developed and designed the theme of the 2015 event: The Incredible Unknown. Inspired by the quote by astronomer and UChicago alumnus Carl Sagan, the theme implores the audience to venture beyond the ordinary to reveal findings and discover solutions to unanswered questions. The theme references Sagan’s background in space. The branding was carried throughout the the conference on the program, presentation slides, the TEDxUChicago website, publicity materials, shirts, and more.
