The Card of Cankarjev dom
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design — three broad subject areas that are collectively shaping our world. But a TED conference is broader still, showcasing important ideas from any discipline, and exploring how they all connect. The format is fast-paced: 10+ talks over the course of a TEDx day, as well as morning and evening get-togethers. As they take in the program, attendees and speakers from vastly different fields can cross-fertilize and draw inspiration from unlikely places. This is the magic of TED.
In the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading,” the TEDx program helps communities, organizations and individuals produce TED-style events at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis, under a free license from TED.
The year 2009 did not only symbolise the beginning of TEDx events but also the first TEDx Ljubljana event. It started with small halls, lecture halls, beginner mistakes and a lot of hard work. As years went by the team grew bigger as well as the audience. The event moved to Cankarjev dom, the Gallus Hall and became the biggest and most important TEDx event of Slovenia. Since 2009 we have hosted already 160 speakers and collected more than 1.500.000 views of videos. In this year's more than 1.500 visitors are expected.
