Join us for the TEDxFSCJ Main Event: Barriers

Whether we embrace them or break them, build them up or tear them down, barriers exert a tremendous impact on us all. On Saturday, April 7, 2018, join TEDxFSCJ for our annual conference. Nine speakers will explore the many, even contradictory elements of barriers—personal and political, natural and artificial, empowering and constraining. 

The event will be hosted by FSCJ Students Tina Kappel and Lacey Neikirk.

Tickets are free and the event is open to the public, but all attendees must register

When: 1-4:30 p.m.
Doors open at 1 p.m. The event begins promptly at 1:30 p.m. 
Please arrive early to check-in, secure your seating, explore "ideas worth spreading" and sample our Ethiopian food and refreshments.

Where: FSCJ Kent Campus, Main Auditorium, F-128
