The TEDxRVA Theme Re-Generator 

The unifying idea for this year's conference is simply 're____'. Now you can help finish the thought.

TEDxRVA is coming back to Richmond in March. But instead of nailing down a specific theme for this year’s inspirational speaking event, the group boldly stepped outside the box (or something) and decided to opt for just a prefix, “re-”, and four underscores. As in, TEDxRVA: re_____. Really.

"'Re____' is more than a theme," says the talk's producer, Andy Stefanovich, in a press release announcing the event. "It's an invitation, an action. It is a call for our community to lean in and bridge the gap. 'Re____' leaves a space for you to add your voice to the conversation. Reconsider, reimagine, react, repair, realize ... there is no one word that can capture the future of our community, so we're leaving it open to interpretation."

Or perhaps the planning committee just had a difficult time agreeing on a theme. Whatever the case, we created this app with the help of Wikipedia's list of 1,015 words that begin with re, which should help participants expand on the theme. You are encouraged to post your favorite suggestions in a comment below.
