TEDxHyderabad 2015

TED is a non-profit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

We are proud to announce that Joe Koster, Director, Hyderabad Western Music Foundation, an active partner of Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, is a speaker at the TEDxHyderabad 2015 event. The event will take place on September 20, 2015 in Hyderabad, at the CMC auditorium, Gachibowli. TEDxHyderabad 2015 is a full-day event with a curated audience of about 500 people. There are 14 confirmed speakers (Indian and International) from all walks of life and represent diverse backgrounds from Art, Music, Photography, Space Exploration, Education, Philanthropy, Technology and Agriculture.

The TEDxHyderabad group has already conducted 2 successful events this year in the run up to the main event - TEDxHyderabadLive and TEDxHyderabadWomen, where they received rave reviews.

They are eager to reach out to all members of our community to spread awareness about the event and attend it.
