PROGRAM 2016

Our program runs around five speakers , special acts & guests, entertainment, lifestyle facilities , a good cause and a main theme. Every year we dare ourselves to introduce new ideas and get ourselves out of our comfort zone  to make TEDxwomenflanders an out-of-the-ordinary TEDx event.

SPEAKERS

 

 

Sihame El Kaouakibi
She is an absolute #Believer in investing in our most precious capital: the new generation. Sihame El Kaouakibi has been creating success stories for years, whether as CEO of Let’s go Urban and A Woman’s view or by becoming the youngest member on VRT’s board of directors… This female is bursting with energy and positive vibes and loves sharing these with her audience.
Hilja Ibert
With over 20 years of management and leadership experience in the medical sector she has found her rightful place as CEO of miDiagnostics. This charming pioneer and innovator has managed to reduce the time needed to diagnose a blood sample from hours to minutes – it was about time!
Yamina Krossa
Deriving strength from personal vulnerability, Yamina Krossa was awarded two Bronze Lions in Cannes. As the driving force behind the Benetiet.be charity, she uses “innercrowd-funding” to fund reconstructive breast surgery for women who want to use their own body tissue following a mastectomy due to breast cancer.
Ignaas Devisch
In his book 'Restlessness', Ignaas Devisch, the Ghent philosopher and ethicist, presents an original remedy for an acute lack of time: living abundantly! He joins us at TEDx Women Flanders to explain his refreshing vision on 'time'. A must for anyone who has a severe dislike for time management.
Pascale Platel
Theatre maker, author, actress, dancer, model, media personality ... and now we can add city “guerrillera”, who goes out to battle modern life armed with a wicker chair for the sake of relaxation. Where does Pascale Platel still find the time?

MUSIC

CORNERS

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.

Adilia Yip
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.
