Innovation in Creativity

TEDxZurich is launching TEDxZurichSalon events. The Salons complement the main event by bringing the community together more frequently and providing opportunities for conversation and heightened interaction between speaker and audience. Think of it as a dinner party with the smartest people you know.

The first event will take place on September 28th and explore Innovation in Creativity

Hosted at the Impact hub, our Community Partner, it will give a glimpse into creative spaces in Zurich, their obstacles and potential. In TEDx tradition it will start with ideas worth spreading and in Salon fashion then move into small discussion rounds, focusing on a concrete question.
