TEDxStJohns 2015 - Make+Belief

TEDxStJohns 2015 – Exploring what it is to Make + Belief

We are the makers of things. Tools. Societies. Norms. Ideas. We advance through our creations in an attempt to make sense of it all. We have strong convictions, yet we can be easily swayed. Because in an age when we have the answers at our fingertips, many questions still go unexplained. And in a time of information overload, we struggle to know what is real.

Believing can be magical, beliefs can be contentious. At the crux of culture and the heart of identity, in the end, it is you who decides. What does it take to make you believe? Join us at TEDxStJohns 2015 as we explore the intersection of innovation and imagination.
