Smashing Boxes: TEDxCuraçao presents theme for 2017

tedex-100WILLEMSTAD: TEDxCuraçao presented earlier this year in March a breakthrough conference that covered different aspects of their theme ‘Bridging The Gap’. The team of professional volunteers has started the creation of a new event that will take you to understand new perspectives.

‘Smashing Boxes’ is the theme for 2017. With this topic the organization will challenge visitors and other followers to ask themselves: Do I dare to explore the unknown? Reset your perception of reality and are you brave enough to go after what you want - whatever that may be? Zoom out, see the bigger picture and stop letting everyday life, expectations and comfort zones decide for you.

This week, past Tuesday the team of professionals presented the conference to sponsors and potential partners. The tedex-279gathering that was held at Déjà Vu restaurant in Pietermaai District was well visited, as with all TEDx events the aim is to bring together enthusiastic and devoted speakers and audience members to inspire, activate and connect the bright minds of our community who are not afraid of change. TEDxCuraçao is an independently organized official TEDx event that operates under a TED license issued to Nephtalie Demei and organized by the TEDxCuraçao Foundation in cooperation with organizations and professionals that share the same ideal.

The first confirmed speaker for next year was also announced, Mr. Mark Tigchelaar. He’s the inventor of UseClark, an online platform that enables users to stay focused while reading long digital texts and retaining more information. An extra perk is that this tool can be used to help people with dyslexia. This method will be made available in Curaçao in the second half of 2017. TEDxCuraçao will be held on May 13 of 2017. The program will consist of 10 speakers, live entertainment, enjoyable food and drinks and ample opportunities to network with like-minded individuals.
