October 22, 2016 / 9:00-21:00 / Volkstheater

We are explorers.
Always on the hunt for fading glimpses of everything from the vastness of forever-unreachable outer space to the depths of our sometimes misunderstood self. Armed with the hunch that maybe, just maybe, nothing is ever created, only discovered, we insatiably question all in our never-ending pursuit of discovery.

And then to discover, all we need to do is look beyond the ordinary.

We invite you to join us in putting aside conventionalism while delving into ideas that might be way, way out-there. Let’s seriously consider putting ourselves out there and revealing the threats and wonders that have been awaiting us out there all along.

We have gathered speakers from all four corners of the globe for a full day to explore the most out there ideas, from the latest advances in science and technology to the deepest insights in psychology, creativity and deep wisdom.

OUT THERE EXHIBITION

Popupzentrale, Mariahilfer Str. 3, Vienna

TEDxVienna speaker Martha Cooper has been photographing hip hop culture, graffiti and street art since the 70s. Street artist Mundano's projects became a social movement and he a recognized TED & Ashoka Fellow.

Martha and Mundano recognized the connections between their work. They began sharing photographs and ideas, and the resulting collaboration is presented in a unique exhibition for the first time in Europe.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I want to cancel my ticket?

Unfortunately, you can't, but you can transfer it to somebody else. Please send us the name and email of the person you want to transfer it to with the email you used to buy your ticket(s) until October 10.

What if I want to do more than listen to TEDx Talks?

We have inspiring and amazing exhibitors and performances, delicious local food and drinks, networking opportunities, and did we mention that the event is in the beautiful Volkstheater?

What if I don't want to stay seated for 12 hours?

That's totally okay. TEDxVienna 2016 features four sessions of talks, each of which are about 90 minutes long. But you can come and go or visit the exhibition area anytime.

What if I get hungry or thirsty?

No problem at all! We’ll make sure your focus is on great ideas and not your rumbling stomach. You’ll be able to enjoy a tasty selection of snacks and refreshments at no additional cost.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxVienna, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxVienna event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
