TEDxCrocettaSalon - June 15, 2013
During the afternoon there will be a couple of live speakers and we will show some selected TED videos. The event will be held in English.
GET INSPIRED BY SCIENCE
16.00 - 16.30 : Check-in
16.30 - 17.45 : TEDxCrocetta and Toolbox Presentation
17.45 - 18.00 : coffee-break
18.00 - 18.45 : Second part
18.45 - 19.00 : Closing + Networking
This event is a great opportunity to watch and discuss TED or TEDx videos that particularly hit us. We will also host some guest speakers! TED is sharing and exchange, so everyone should suggest a video to watch together and make the evening "yours" as well. The TED Talk should be on topic or an entertainment video and MUST be less than 6 minutes. Please remember to add the link to the video of your choice.
The afternoon meeting will be held in Toolbox Office Lab & Coworking, Via Agostino da Montefeltro 2
We look forward to seeing you!
The TEDxCrocetta Team

What are TEDxCrocettaSalon events?
We are planning a TEDxCrocetta conference in October with the theme "Thinking outside the box" that will be able to host a maximum of 100 people. In order to grow our community and to enhance even more the opportunity to share ideas, TEDxCrocetta has decided to organize 3 Salon events (in May, June, and September) which are more focused on interaction and discussion. At these TEDxCrocettaSalon events, we will watch TEDTalks, have discussions, and host a few live speakers.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event.
What is TED?
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is an annual conference held since 1984. TED's motto - ideas worth spreading - gathers scientists, businessmen, politicians, artists, musicians and engineers on one stage. The speakers share much in common: bright ideas, undisputed influence in their respected fields of activity and the ability to talk about sophisticated things in a simple manner.
When & Where
TEDx is an open-source community of independently organized events that, in the spirit of ideas worth spreading, inspire innovation, leadership, and visionary insights. TEDxCrocetta is our way of creating such a community in Torino.
We believe that Torino has a lot to offer when it comes to creativity and innovation. Up to today, however, it lacks an interdisciplinary community that can bring people together in an open forum where they can meet and discuss, and where ideas worth spreading can ignite and evolve. TEDxCrocetta, the only TEDx group in Torino, is our way of creating such a community and bringing more value to the many wonderful ideas born in this city.
