TEDxDubai 2011 The Beauty of Small Things


After Dream|Do|Be in 2009 and REBOOT in 2010 we thought it would have been interesting to explore those little things in life that have a great impact on our society.

We are living in a city that is world renown for the massive scale of its projects and landmarks,  but we are also aware that any vision starts with a small step, one initial sparkle that can change everything.

TEDxDubai 2011 will feature stories that discover the fascinating tiny details that can turn a simple idea in something extraordinary.

TEDxDubai 2011 will take place in late October 2011 in a venue TBC. Registration will be launched after the summer.

TEDxDubai 2011 will introduce a “Talent Search” for speakers,  that was in the pipeline for the 2010 edition but that we could not implement because of time constraints:  TEDx Dubai speakers are always selected by the organizers, but for the 2011 edition we will feature some speakers selected by theTEDx community.

We will organize a few  TEDxDubai gatherings where we will ask people that want to be considered as speakers to pitch their TEDxDubai talk to a camera. All the videos will be posted on this website and the TEDxDubai community will be able to vote. The top 3 pitches will then become TEDxDubai 2011 talks. Details will be posted on this website soon.

Another innovation for 2011 will be the TEDxDubai community collaborating on the Inside Out Project initiated by TED Prize winner JR. For details please check out his talk here.
