TEDx Hickory is looking for speakers to present at this coming year’s event, under the theme “Connect,” as expressed in the quotation from Fyodor Dostoevski, “A disturbance in one place is felt at the other end of the world,” and exemplified in iconic images from philosophies, religions, literature, and popular culture from around the world: Celtic Knots, Hindu Mandalas, the Ripple Effect, the Web of Life, 6 Degrees of Connection, Buddhism’s Eternal Knot.
