TEDxAthens – The Art of Disruption

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.┬áNaturally, we encourage and support the expansion of TEDx Program in Greece. If you are a team of passionate volunteers willing bring a TED-like experience to your local community, please do let us know!

In 2009 we had a brilliant idea (“Mind the Idea”), to bring the TED experience in Athens.

In 2010 we weren’t afraid to start all over again (“Starting from Scratch”), because only by gaining momentum can you get farther ahead.

In 2011, we want to turn everything upside down with “The Art of Disruption”!

TEDxAthens returns in December 3rd to present the secrets and the art of disruption.

But how does one define what is disruptive?
Any single thing or idea with the potential to re-define the way in which a system or situation works may be regarded as disruptive, thus changing them for ever.

From Wikipedia and Twitter to Molecular Cuisine and the Tsunamis, our world is full of disruptions which redefine on a daily basis -some indeed more than the others- the way we live.

Today the need to discover new paths for a creative change in our lives is stronger than ever.

From finance and business, to society overall and our little daily habits, there is the belief that creative and at the same time subversive ideas and initiatives have the potential to give new impetus and transform our world.

We can’t achieve substantial changes by continuing to function the same way as before.

It is now the time to rewrite the “rules of the game” and change. Everything.


We purchased the mc 953zm/a audio/video cable but it will not work either.
