The TEDxFlandersWomen team is busy composing another fantastic program around eight speakers, special acts, entertainment, a good cause and a main theme.
Every year, we dare to introduce new ideas and get out of our comfort zones to make TEDxFlandersWomen an extraordinary TEDx event.
TEDxFlandersWomen 2017 will explore this year’s theme ‘Bridges’ - We build them, we traverse them and sometimes we even burn them for better or worse. How appropriate for Antwerp; a city full of crossings and connections.
More details will be announced shortly ... so keep following us!

Born in Hong Kong, Adilia Yip is a music performer and researcher (PhD) at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. Her instrument is the marimba, a beautiful gigantic wooden keyboard of the percussion family. Its first prototype was built in the beginning of the 20th century, based on the structural design of its ethnic origins from Africa, Indonesia (gamelan), and Guatemala.
The Book Store
Small books on great ideas! Only TED books.
The Empty Shop
The Empty Shop, to be filled with donated clothes. This international 'high-end’ give-away-store concept had its premiere in Belgium in 2015 -where else than in fashion city Antwerp.
1. Donate: Every day again, The Empty Shop starts completely empty, and is slowly getting filled with clothing donations.
2. Style up: All donateurs get a royal treatment. Who wishes, can bring friends or their network to throw a ‚give-party’. Together the donations are being labeled and hung on a mannequin or clothing rack.
Donateurs can share their good deed, after taking their picture with their donation and share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. (#emptyshopantwerp)
3. Sell for good cause: At the same time you can buy the donated clothes. The profit goes to a good cause.
