Forward Festival – Win 5 Tickets

Name: Fareena Chaudhry

Role within TEDx: Co-Lead TedxZurich 2017

I look forward to a dynamic exchange between creative minds that are part of the wider Zurich community. The varied programme of side events, live art sessions and talks will provide the perfect platform for discussion and the exchange of ideas. The venue for the Festival – Freitag Fabrik, further lends to the experience as it is interesting, edgy and stimulating.

Zurich is now becoming an important hub for ideas, inspiration and intrigue. TedxZurich sees the Forward Festival as an important  partner in accelerating ‘worth spreading’.

 TedxZurich has five free tickets up for grabs. To win one, let us know what TEDxZurich’s 2017 theme of ‘Opening Doors’ means to you. Send your answers here
