TEDxEde in September is not just about wild, inspiring, emotional and provocative talks, we also seek new ways to inspire through arts. For an exposition at TEDxEde 2013, we're looking for 10 photographers that are willing to participate in a photo chain. In a photo chain, every photographer makes one photo, inspired by the previous photo. The first photographer sparks off the chain, and one by one every photographer makes a photo that is inspired by the previous photo. It is important that an outsider can make the link between your photo and the previous photo.
TEDxEdeChange was a wonderful evening filled with great talks. The first live speaker, Caspar ter Horst, (Retail revolution) shared his ideas on a new way to prevent malfunctioning and dangerous consumer goods being sold on the European markt. And Gijs Horvers (Making contact with autism) impressed the participants with a touching personal talk on autism stereotypes.
Next thursday, April 4th, ReeHorst hotel will be the location for TEDxEdeChange. There is an awesome streamed-speaker-line-up and there are two added speakers by our organising committee.
As one of the three TEDxChange locations in Holland we are proud to release the following program to an inspiring evening.
19:30 - 20:30 Arrival and network-coffee
