TEDxUCincinnati’s sixth annual event, “Off the Record,” serves to uncover what is typically unseen, discover what may appear to be the unknown,
and tap into knowledge that has not been previously explored. It creates an opportunity to discuss the hidden nature of topics in our society,
further promoting the idea that just because something is out of sight does not mean it is nonexistent. There are rules spoken but unwritten, ideas
considered but unpublished, scenes filmed but unedited. Off the Record inspires speakers and attendees to explore and define that are between what
happened, and what is recorded. Off the Record will serve to educate our audience, inspire them to practice mindfulness and awareness,
and empower them to dive into the unknown to reveal the “hidden.”
