Speakers 2021 colour_edited.jpg


Eons ago, a Velarium stood over the Colosseum, bringing people together for years to come. Centuries later, in the year 1984, TEDx laid its awning over the world, bringing together ideas, thoughts and experiences. After four successful events, we at TEDxIMTHyderabad, have decided to celebrate this canopy of ideas for our fifth year. At "Velarium", we bring to you a canopy of our own - with diverse stories meant to inspire, comfort, and bring people together in a shelter of ideas.

What does it mean to be a human in today's world? How do we leave behind everything that limits our reach, and expand our horizons? Take a deep dive with us, into ideas that help us explore unique facets of the humans of today. Join us to witness a diverse range of challenging themes that focus on the questions that drive our existence. On 12 February, we'll welcome you to our own "Velarium".
