TEDxOmaha was held Saturday, October 24, 2015 at the Harper Center on the campus of Creighton University.
The great stories of humanity – fiction and non – are about struggle. Skilled storytellers guide us through experiences that seem as familiar as our own dreams. We recognize ourselves in the conflicted thoughts of the protagonist. When things fall apart in the plot, we empathize with the suffering characters. At a triumph, we applaud for the victor, but also for ourselves.
Our epics follow three core conflicts:
Human vs. Nature
Human vs. Human
Human vs. Self
In each of these themes, we are seeking power. Each of us is caught in a dynamic dance that defines our character and our capabilities. Daily struggles with our internal dialogue. Life-changing moments when we stand up against a crowd. Sheltering our family from the storm gathering on the horizon.
TEDxOmaha 2015 is about Conflict.
In the natural world.
Over each other.
Expect to grapple with destiny and control.
Question how we make sense of the world.
Get nose-to-nose with what makes us continue to struggle against the odds.
