TEDxVictoriaIsland is Reborn as TEDxLagos | 27th September 2013

TEDxLagos was created in the spirit of the TED mission, “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals for and in Nigeria the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences in Lagos.

Our TEDxLagos conference is multi-disciplinary and this year will be themed “Inclusion”. It will encapsulate the work of all our speakers and performers in their wide range of fields within this year’s theme: inclusion. It gives a common thread that will tie our live speakers and performers; helping ideas flow from one presentation or performance into the next.

At TEDxLagos, live presenters will spark deep conversation and connections. TEDxLagos is fully planned and coordinated independently by volunteers for and in Nigeria.

Our audience will witness TED talks and performances inspired by our speakers’ passion for what they do.What will their talks and performances be about?  What makes our speakers hopeful for the future? What do they reflect on? You will have to attend to find out!

Some speakers for this year’s event include: Tonye Cole, Kunlé Adeyemi, Yewande Sadiku, Azu Nwagbogu, eLDeeBilikiss Adebiyi-Abiola, Tunde Kelani, Kelechi Amadi-Obi.

Date: 27th September 2013
Time: 10AM – 7PM
Venue: Oriental Hotels, Lagos
More Information: Admission is Free but all attendees MUST register {HERE} to attend the event.

    TED-Technology, Entertainment, Design……. from the above full description, I do not see any of the speakers who will speak on a technologically oriented topic……. I don’t see any one of the speakers having a design oriented mindset on changing the way Nigerians spring up buildings…….It all appears that we are becoming a technology deficient society……and more oriented towards the arts and entertainment which I must say is sad…..

Remember, the TED slogan “ideas worth spreading”. This is our ultimate goal at the event as we aim to inspire and empower attendees with sufficient inspiration and ideas to fuel their passions.
