At this year’s edition we are going to dance. And please, believe us if we say it really doesn’t matter, if you got the moves. At TEDxFryslân 2018 dancing can be everything you want it to be. Your dance gives you goosebumps and makes hours feels like minutes. Your definition of dancing resonates. To you. And because it does just that, it is you who can make it resonate to others. There’s just one rule. Don’t talk, just dance. And that is also exactly what our speakers did. Let their ideas inspire you at TEDxFryslân 2018!

This year, TEDxFryslân invites you to Neushoorn, a magical place in the heart of Leeuwarden, Cultural Capital of Europe 2018. Neushoorn is not only known for its vibrant music, dance and film culture, but also for the development of talent and for being an open center for business and leisure.

The speakers will take the stage in the big concert hall (Grote Zaal). Large and yet so cozy, this space will accommodate 250 eager “first-come-first-serve” listeners. But no fear, since Neushoorn is truly an entertainment capital within the European capital of Culture, you can find your perfect spot in one of the other spaces where TEDx atmosphere will continue on.

If you’re interested in the first class experience, then we invite you to the Arena, our special chill-out streaming room. Just hang in your beanbag, enjoy a refreshing drink and watch the speakers on a big screen.

Neushoorn is also strongly connected with the the Friesland College, which means their students, will help to take care of your experience, but they will also open the doors of their inspiring dance halls and classrooms, which will for the time being transform into workshop locations and streaming rooms.

What is TedX?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxZwolle, live speakers will spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.
