About TEDx, x=independently organized event
Created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading,” the TEDx program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. As of November 2011, more than 2.000 TEDx events have took place worldwide.
TEDxAthens is a world-class conference about Innovation, Creativity and Ideas based in Athens, Greece. TEDxAthens is one of the very first TEDx events worldwide -consequently the first TEDx event in Greece- and started in May 2009. TEDxAthens seeks to develop and leverage the TED experience at a regional level, bringing together innovators and inspirational speakers, shakers, makers and breakers. TEDxAthens is curated by Dimitris Kalavros-Gousiou and Abraham Tsoukalidis and organized by a team of 40 volunteers.
The Venue: “Theatron” of the Hellenic Cosmos
Having as the main design characteristics multiformity and flexibility, the “THEATRON” can host the most demanding productions regarding the arrangement of the area and technological infrastructure. With the use and application of innovative techniques and architectural solutions, the “THEATRON” possesses unique capabilities of re-arrangement, so that it can adapt to the demands of every event: plays and concerts, conferences, exhibitions and spectacles with particular stage demands.
Faithful to the vision of the Foundation of the Hellenic World, the “THEATRON” has the ambition of housing contemporary artistic expression and to constitute, combined with the other infrastructures of Hellenic Cosmos, a significant cultural centre in Greece.
