After six successful editions, we are honoured to introduce you to the seventh edition of TEDx hosted by the University of Amsterdam: TEDxUniversiteitvanAmsterdam.
The theme of the sixth edition of TEDxUniversiteitvanAmsterdam will be Unveiling Dimensions. Unveiling Dimensions is a TEDx theme that delves into hidden layers, diverse perspectives, and deeper insights within various concepts. The theme stimulates critical thinking, open-mindedness, and the pursuit of diverse viewpoints for a richer understanding. Which truths and hidden dimensions can you unveil?
The goal of the event centred around Unveiling Dimensions is to encourage attendees to broaden their worldview and engage in critical thinking, going beyond their personal perspectives and established narratives. Through exploring hidden layers and deeper insights, the event seeks to unveil truths, encourage personal growth, and ultimately contribute to a richer collective understanding.
Ready to challenge your own biases, assumptions and beliefs? Topics may include:
Are you passionate about a topic? Want to make an impact on your community? Interested in sharing your ideas with the world? We are hosting Pitch night! During this event, you will get the opportunity to present your idea in just 5 powerful minutes.
We just need you to answer this one question: which truths and new dimensions can you unveil?
A jury will then choose the winner, who can participate in our TED event in November and meet our renowned speakers personally.
So don’t be shy and come join us at CREA on the 6th of October, where we will end the night with a nice borrel.
The University of Amsterdam is the Netherlands’ largest university and one of Europe’s most prominent research-led institutions. The UvA’s history dates back from 1632 and has grown over the past centuries into a modern University with a leading reputation in the international world of science. The UvA fosters a state-of-the-art environment and has a large impact on society, which perfectly fits with the nature and spirit of TEDx events.
TEDx events are local editions of the American TED conferences. They are devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design united, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. The TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world, which makes the University of Amsterdam the perfect venue to do so.
