TEDxAdventure: Zoom In
September 3 @ 18:00 - 22:00Free
Join us for a FREE evening of engaging talks, live design and micro-creativity – a taste of what’s to come at TEDxAarhus 2018 (held later this year on October 6!).
A host of speakers will zoom in – and out – on subjects spanning happiness and boredom and connectivity to collaboration and tech in a series of short and sweet talks, sure to get you thinking differently about the world around us. Take a closer look at our city and ourselves with fun and hands-on craft activities. Stay tuned for full details about our program of speakers and activities to be announced leading up to the event!
We’ll close the night with an Art Battle – set to live music – from Collective Å. Two artists will each create a live digital artwork projected onto the walls of the venue, and you will be able to watch the whole process live! For 90 minutes, they will “battle” on the theme ‘Look Closer’ (our TEDxAarhus 2018 theme!) and talk about their process and journey with you.

Zoom In is a TEDxAdventure organised and hosted by TEDxAarhus.
Vision for a sustainable future: TED is a non-profit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. With a focus on Technology, Entertainment and Design, the two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak, inspire and share their ideas for 18 minutes or less.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, the TEDx program helps communities, organizations and individuals produce TED-style events at a local level. TEDx events, like TEDxAarhus, are planned and coordinated independently by teams of passionate volunteers. We are excited to be in its third year with our main event coming up on Saturday, October 6 at Hermans, Tivoli Friheden. Our Pre-Event at the Dome of Visions on September 3 is a fun and engaging free evening of inspiring short talks which will give the community a taste of what to expect on October 6.
We see TEDxAarhus’s ethos aligning closely with the Dome of Visions – our events are designed to spark discussion and connections in the community. We create a positive and engaging space for people to be exposed to ideas around innovation and technology, sustainability and environment, entertainment and culture, art and design and more. We believe in working towards a sustainable future by providing a platform for individuals from all walks of life (not just experienced speakers) to put their ideas out into the universe.
Vision for the city of the future: Our vision looks like a city where we have collectively made strides in sustainable living, a thriving tech and creative scene, a cultural melting pot – while still encouraging active learning and discovery in all fields. We live in an active, compassionate and engaged community that encourages accessibility for all. An exciting and inviting place where both individuals and groups are supported to take risks and be adventurous in thinking, innovation and actions.
