Whilst growing up we discover the world around us bit by bit. In this process, our curious minds perceive even the most banal new experiences as exciting adventures. As time passes we grow accustomed to our surroundings, become entrenched in the present and the novelty of knowledge fades. With TEDxViennaSalon Adventures we want to bring back the wonder, emphasize the learning process and take you on journeys of discovery through hidden worlds in and around the city where you'll rekindle the excitement of learning new things.
To celebrate the learning process we have planned fun and nerdy field trips to bring you out of the theater and into some of Vienna’s hidden treasure spots. We want to use this opportunity to extend the TEDx phenomenon beyond the conference format and offer you a more personal way to interface with innovators and ideas worth spreading.
Join us for a full day of adventures, opening up new realms of science, craft, technology, art and much more!
Adventures is a one-day exploration of Vienna's hidden treasure spots. The adventures will grant you a behind-the-scenes access to the people and places that make Vienna unique. You will be able to attend two adventures throughout the day. When registering for the event you secure a spot at two random adventures out of the many we have lined up for you. So be adventurous because as is often the case in life:
You don’t pick the adventure. The adventure picks you.
Are you ready for these 10 Adventures?
Here's how it works:
The day will start with an energetic breakfast and a sweet getting-to-know of your fellow adventurers. After a short opening, you will receive your adventure bag and head off on your first adventure. Some of you will venture off to see the hidden place where all your data gets stored, while others will get their hands dirty while learning how to screen print. No matter on which adventurous path you ventured, we all meet for lunch back at the base. In the afternoon with a full tummy and memories of some unexpected and crazy experiences, we will all head out to our second round of adventures. This time, you will attend a different adventure than the one in the morning. After exploring your second adventure in the afternoon, everybody will be brought back to the base camp for a joint closing to share insightful stories. If you have still got some energy left, you will be able to listen to cool rhythms, cheer with your adventure mates and even win some cool prizes.
Every adventure needs to start somewhere! For this special day we’ll pitch a tent in Vienna’s historic Palais Eschenbach and although Austrians use the French designation "Palais" much more widely than the English "Palace”, it’s nevertheless an imposing venue. With support from the ÖGV, we’re opening up the Palais’ doors not only as a congregation point, but also as a place to experience various interactive exhibits, get further information, replenish and nourish yourself. We’ll provide the experiences, the food and the drinks. You should bring your curiosity and a sense of adventure!
Palais Eschenbach, Eschenbachgasse 11, 1010 Wien
So let’s start off the morning by practicing Laughter Yoga together! We promise: it is the perfect ice-breaker and will boost your mood immediately – are you ready for this first adventure of the day?
