TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share their experiences. The programs consist of video and live speakers combined to spark deep discussion and connection. In case you didn’t know, the x = independently organized TED event.
Onwards to TEDxColombo 2018
This year’s TEDxColombo themed ‘I, You, We’ is about sparking an actionable understanding of identity and how it can be used as a tool for building empathy, trust, and solidarity within and across cultures. While we imagine individually, it’s time we crafted the ideas born of those musings, communally. Reaching over 2000 people in the flesh, and many more through Livestream pocket events, TEDxColombo will enter its 7th year as one of Sri Lanka’s oldest and largest TEDx events.
2018’s line-up of speakers will share on the implications of behavior, the psychology of an aesthetic world, the fluidity of how we communicate and the power of storytelling. TEDxColombo 2018 will explore the caliber of collaborative ‘community’ we wish to create for the future of Sri Lanka through art, entertainment, science, language, and technology.
‘I, You, We’ will be hosted at Nelum Pokuna on the 28th of October 2018 from 3 PM onwards. If you are interested in attending TEDxColombo 2018, you can click here to purchase tickets, priced at LKR 3000/-. If you want additional information about the speakers and performers, you can click here.
