Historic and immersed in an old-world charm yet dynamic, Bandra is home to the city’s most trendy events. TEDxBandra 2018 makes it to this list. A bunch of passionate TEDsters have collaborated to conduct TEDxBandra 2018, an independently organised event, under the parent body of TED Talks on the 20th of May. TED is a global foundation devoted to ‘ideas worth spreading. It initially began as a platform where technology, entertainment and design verticals converged, however, now, the scope has become broader, converging all topics under the universe – from science to business, to globally relevant issues.
Created in line with TED’s mission to spread the power of ideas and focus on meaningful change, TED supports individual groups who want to create a TED-like event in their own community. Our last conference, held in March 2017 witnessed 17 speakers and a band performance from Boys of South Park, under the theme of ‘Unilateral Act, Universal Impact.’
Our focus for TEDxBandra 2018 is to culturally integrate the theme of ‘catharsis’ into our curation. Catharsis refers to a strong emotional expression, and an insight, a new realisation and revelation. The expression of catharsis is considered to have a strong healing effect. Our speakers (some of which are announced below) will share their personal journey of catharsis in fulfilling their passions, and the audience will feel a sense of collective catharsis and positive affirmation.
With an opening act, 18 speakers, networking breaks, performance acts and experience zones, across cultures, TEDxBandra will make your Sunday better!
The speakers at the conference are from varied fields of work and are ordinary people doing extraordinary work. The lineup includes a teacher, a transgender activist, a violinist, a social rural entrepreneur, a CEO, gynaecologist, women rights activist, photographer, football coach and others. Every talk with a central theme of Catharsis will talk about the speakers and their work and the change it bought to the society. These changemakers will share an idea worth spreading and will give you a different perspective, direction or a goal.
