For the first time the TEDxTransmedia global conference will be a full day-and-a-half event with a special opening performance and cocktail party, followed by a jam-packed day of inspirational speakers.
This year's theme: WEKids: Dreamers, Geeks, Mindshifters, brings together a diverse range of remarkable speakers who have been carefully selected because of their ability to communicate the richness and importance of their subject to an interdisciplinary audience. Their ideas strike at the heart of TED’s overall mission: ideas worth spreading.
On Thursday, September 27th, attendees will have the opportunity to visit the spectacular MAXXI Museum, where the event is being held, and experience 'Performing MAXXI: Students Interpreting Museum Space,' a project created specifically for TEDxTransmedia 2012 by MAXXI Education Department with St. George's School of Rome. Tickets are all included in the event participation fee.
The main TEDxTransmedia event will run from 11:00 to 19:00 on Friday, September 28th. Registration will open at 10:00.
To attend the museum performance, starting at 17:00, you should register on Thursday 27th from 16:00.
We hope the energy and enthusiasm of TEDxTransmedia 2012 will awaken the inner child in everyone, because the child is precisely: The Dreamer, The Geek and The Mindshifter.
Look forward to seeing you in Rome!
