Call for projects: TEDxTeen London, Oct 11 2014

TEDxTeen is coming to London on October 11th 2014 and Music Hackspace has been invited to host a dedicated demo booth and feature in the conference speaker sessions.

The TEDx Program is a platform created by TED and TEDxTeen is an all day conference put on by We Are Family Foundation, taking place in New York City. This October they are bringing the 6th TEDxTeen Conference to London at the O2 Indigo Theatre.

If you have a project and would like to take part, contact curators@stagingmhs.local, we will be happy to answer any queries. Please remember when submitting that we are looking for projects that are ready for demonstration and are engaging; these can be ‘work in progress’ or finalised pieces/products.

The theme of the conference is “Remarkable Disruptors”:

The world is changing faster than ever. Affecting every aspect of our lives. Business models and jobs that we couldn’t have imagined ten years ago, are now the norm. Boundaries are blurring, everyone can play a role.

Much of the change is driven by technology. Disrupting conventions to allow us to live in new ways, try new things and make stuff more easily than ever before.

Young people understand this better than anyone, being the first generation to be younger than the Internet. Many of these young people are driving the change, proving that if you’re good enough you’re old enough.

We challenge you to see the world through their lens. To see not just the future they are building, not just the new norms they are creating, but the now that they have already impacted.

Pay attention. Life is moving quicker than ever. With each blink our world shifts.

Make. It. Count.
