What is TEDxBreda?
TEDxBreda is a local gathering dedicated to ideas worth spreading. It is an conference event of an afternoon and evening. Central to this conference are short talks and acts (max 18 min). Also, in the spirit of sharing ideas, there is a lot of time to interact with speakers, TEDx team and other attendees. It is a great place to get inspiration, to meet new people and to get to know our world and the future a little bit better.
TEDxBreda is made possible by our wonderful team of all volunteers and of course our generous partners and sponsors. (Want to be involved as a partner too? Click here!). It lacks any commercial, religious or political agenda. Its goal is to spark conversation, connection and community. We at TEDxBreda find it really important that our local community benefits from this event. That is why we involve local speakers and local partners in organizing this event.
We love Breda and we want Breda to love TEDx!
TEDx is completely in the spirit of TED, the big international conference. TED is known for its popular website www.ted.com. TED was the father of learning through online video and has sparked a revelution in how education is approached.
All TEDx’s have to get a license from TED, but they remain independent. TEDx is like TED’s little brother. There are many TEDx’s worldwide. For example: TEDxSydney, TEDxKrakow and there was even a TEDxAntartica.
So what does the conference look like?
Our TEDx starts in the afternoon and in the program you can count onn a combination of all sorts of talks, performances and videos. The talks can range from humorous to philosophy to design. The performances can be as diverse; music, dance, magic, name it. The videos consist of TED talks, recorded at one of our brother TEDx’s’. It is a dynamic program with lots of breaks. We make sure you won’t have to sit that long, we don’t like that either. These breaks are great opportunities to meet interesting people and to brainstorm how the ideas can be applied to Breda! Of course there will be food and drinks too. We will make sure not only your head get’s enriched, but when you leave you will have a warm heart and a full belly!!!
