TEDxTallaght: The Atelier of Ideas
17th October 2013
Ateliers have their origin in medieval times and became places where master artists and crafts people shared skills and encouraged creative experimentation with their students. Now imagine a 21st century atelier where ideas are sparked and innovation is nurtured - an Atelier of Ideas - that\'s what TEDx Tallaght 2013 aims to be this year. Bringing together inspired thinkers and curious souls this TEDx welcomes people from many disciplines who all want to achieve a deeper understanding of the world.
What is TEDx?
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 TEDxTallaght where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTallaght 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.
