On Saturday, Nov. 19, Singapore will be hosting its annual TEDxYouth@Singapore 2011. The theme for this year’s event is “IDEA+ACTION” and will feature an innovative and inspiring lineup of local speakers who will share their views on how they are shaping the hearts and minds of tomorrow’s generation. Among the speakers is City Harvest Church’s former media producer, Adrian Chan, who will be talking about how he connects creativity and culture through his production, broadcast and archival work.
TEDx is an affiliate arm of TED—a nonprofit organization whose motto, “Ideas Worth Spreading”, is celebrated across cultures and communities around the world. Its first conference in 1984 saw people gathering from the technology, entertainment and design sectors and this scope has since broadened to include other platforms for more creative exchange between individuals and communities, such as the award-winning TEDTalks video site, TEDx programs, the Open Translation Project, and the annual TED Prize.
The TEDx program was created in the spirit of TED’s mission to devote to Ideas Worth Spreading, and is designed to give individuals, communities and organizations the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. Each TEDx event is independently organized on a community-by-community basis and this year’s TEDxYouth@Singapore 2011 is fully planned and coordinated by the youths of Singapore.
