Third TEDx Panaji to be big on ideas
Goa is getting ready to celebrate ideas worth spreading with the TEDx Panaji 2019 Conference on a much larger scale this year. The event will be held on Sunday, 28th April 2019 at the Kala Academy in Panaji, Goa. The annual event, organized independently by a group of volunteers under license from TED (www.ted.com), provides a platform for diverse ideas presented by fascinating speakers and performers. Each speaker gets a maximum of eighteen minutes on stage.
The event this year carries the theme #Hacked, focusing on people who have inspired those around them by using smarter, more efficient ways to be successful while demonstrating intelligence, creativity, originality, resourcefulness and most importantly, perseverance to help them rise above the ordinary and achieve great heights in their field of work.
Having hosted two half-day events in 2017 and 2018, the 2019 event promises to be much bigger, with an all-day program featuring fourteen live speakers, two music and dance performances by artists of international repute, TED Talk videos and much more.
“The speakers include a mix of Goan, national and international names, who will present their mind-boggling ideas live on stage,” said, Dattaprasad Shetkar, the Lead Organizer of TEDx Panaji.
The list, soon to be announced on the Facebook page and Instagram handle of TEDx Panaji, features eminent personalities such as an Infosys Prize-winning scientist, a DIY science channel Youtuber, an Indian classical musician Youtuber, a Sanskrit scholar, an artist with cerebral palsy, a world-renowned fashion designer, a young prodigy inventor, etc.
Alongside the talks that will happen in the AC auditorium, participants will also be able to step into curated spaces outside the auditorium, such as the Start-up Zone, where unique business start-ups from Goa will be showcased.
An Experience Zone, curated by the team of TEDx Panaji along with the Goa State Biodiversity Board, will put the spotlight on unique Goan ideas, some of which are vanishing at a fast pace. There will also be a section on technologically cutting-edge advances in fields like robotics and IOT, with a special focus on agriculture.
Every aspect of the event will aim to amaze audiences with never-before-seen or heard-about ideas, and a curated Goan food experience along with music and dance performances will be a highlight.
Online registrations for attending the event will start soon. Tickets will also be available at select outlets of brand partners such as 3M Car Care, FiiRE – Forum for Innovation Incubation Research and Entrepreneurship, 91 Springboard etc. The event is also supported by 92.7 BIG FM, Viva Goa, Business Goa, Team Inertia, and Kaydence amp; Kianna.
