Events » FEAR ITSELF!!


Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Lisner Auditorium - 730 21st Street NW Washington, DC 20052


On April 14, 2018, over 1,300 people from the Foggy Bottom community will gather at Lisner Auditorium on The George Washington University campus for a full-day, TED inspired experience organized by a team of 40 undergraduates featuring over 30 live presentations, artistic performances, and interactive exhibits. All presentations, exhibits, partnerships, and related activities and memorabilia will be centered around this year’s theme, Fear Itself. Tickets are available through the Lisner Auditorium box office for $20.


With this year’s theme of “Fear Itself,” TEDxFoggyBottom will feature the innovative ideas of our community’s risk takers and unconventional changemakers to re-examine the concept of fear and present talks which cast it in different lights: as a hindrance, a motivator, a biological response, a source of entertainment, and even as an immovable given.
