During the Heerenveen event we will be exploring the malleability of reality together.
Everything starts with inspiration, and recognition can only be accomplished by actually doing things. Our Heerenveen speakers are people with inspiring ideas. Sometimes a little rebellious, sometimes modest. Sometimes large and impressive, sometimes small and touching the heart. Sometimes already a bit more concretely formed, sometimes still in need of some help. Together with the audience we want to take these ideas further. Because whatever they are, they put reality up for debate, from the perspective that the world (Friesland) will change and be improved, if and when they are implemented. The TEDxFryslân 2017 theme describes the starting point of this joint trip.
Therefore this year’s theme is:
TO DARE REALITY
Doors open at 9 am, event starts at 10 am.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFryslân, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFryslân event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
