Description

TEDxVarnaWomen is the first TEDxWomen event to take place in Varna, Bulgaria. Celebrating the power of women to be creators and change makers. The theme is The Queens which represent the speakers and their power in each field:мedicine, literature, sports, journalism, entrepreneurship, politics, economics, technology, etc. Will feature a curated lineup of diverse speakers spanning industry, origin, age and experience. The goal of this event is to help young people connect in an environment that inspires the expression of unique points of view, and dialogue that can open minds and change opinions about the true meaning of women power. TEDxVarnaWomen bring you top speakers to inspire you, move you, and engage you to think differently. They will share with you their past, present, and future. They will reveal how their fears are catalyst for change and initiate their power and how their continued faith in their own capabilities helps to define their path forward. TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan "ideas worth spreading". TED was founded in February 1984 as a conference, which has been held annually since 1990.TED's early emphasis was technology and design, consistent with its Silicon Valley origins, but it has since broadened its focus to include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics. The main TED conference is held annually in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Prior to 2014, the conference was held in Long Beach. TED events are also held throughout North America and in Europe and Asia, offering live streaming of the talks. They address a wide range of topics within the research and practice of science and culture, often through storytelling. The speakers are given a maximum of 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging ways they can. Past speakers include Bill Clinton, Jane Goodall, Al Gore, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Billy Graham, Richard Dawkins, Bill Gates, Bono, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and many Nobel Prize winners. TED's current curator is the British former computer journalist and magazine publisher Chris Anderson.Since June 2006 TED Talks have been offered for free viewing online, under an Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives Creative Commons license, through TED.com. As of March 2016, over 2,400 TED Talks are freely available on the website. In June 2011, TED Talks' combined viewing figure stood at more than 500 million,and by November 2012, TED Talks had been watched over one billion times worldwide.Not all TED Talks are equally popular, however. Those given by academics tend to be watched more online while art and design videos tend to be watched less than average. In the spirit of ideas that are worth spreading, TED creates a program called TEDx - local, self-organized events that unite people to share experiences similar to TED. Our event is called TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. Our event, TEDTalk videos and live speakers will combine to create a deep discussion and connection. The TED conference provides general guidelines for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. The conference clearly and reasonably fits into the conceptual concept embedded in the EYC program, allowing local and internationally recognized lecturers with proven biographies and contributions to society. By acquiring the license for TEDxVarnaWomen the organization will realize it annually.

Target

A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that are idea-focused, and cover a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter. Present multiple issues and a diversity of voices from many disciplines.A TEDx event is organized only by volunteers and just like TED events, it lacks any commercial, religious or political agenda. Its goal is to spark conversation, connection and community. Spreading ideas from our community to the world scene, Varna will become more attractive not only for Europeans, but for world citizens.
