Turn the Tides

Turn the Tides is the theme of TEDxAUCollege’s conference of 2016. It stands for ideas and incentives that go against the grain, or against the stream in this case. The event will bring together speakers from different fields of knowledge who will present their ideas and offer new approaches to current issues. The body of speakers will encompass a mixture of experienced professionals as well as younger students. We are looking forward to bring this event to you on the 2nd of March 2016. The location is BIMHUIS, doors will open at 17:30 and the ticket price is 20,00 €. We have a special host for you this year: Woody Fu from Boom Chicago! The TEDxAUCollege Team is looking forward to welcoming you at the event in March.

Pitch Night is our event leading up to the main conference. It will consist of a number of young, aspiring speakers who will pitch their ideas to an audience for the first time. At the end of the night the audience will vote for their two favorite speakers, who will then go on to present their full talk together with our other professional speakers on the main TEDxAUCollege stage! Pitch Night is the opportunity for young speakers to contribute to the TEDx experience.

The event will be held in the Amsterdam University College Academic Building at 19:00 on February 10th. Entrance is free, but there are limited spaces so make sure to arrive on time! For more info check our Facebook event.
