It is a TEDx event featuring the webcast of TEDWomen, a one-day event curated by TED and Pat Mitchell that this year will take place on December 5, 2013 in San Francisco.
TEDWomen 2013 will channel the bootstrap of Silicon Valley to celebrate inventions in all its forms. Not just technology, but also solutions to poverty, approaches to peacemaking, expressions of art and, at times, our own lives.
TEDxFlanders will take part by sharing the live stream and introducing its first TEDxWomen
event on December 5, at Het Huis Happaert, right in the heart of Antwerp.
Around the theme "Sharing inspiring stories" our speakers will guide us through the way we communicate, what our jobs can bring us to, the force that lives inside of us all and how we can bring hope to others. Special attendees and acts will inspire and surprise this special evening and the launch of TEDxFlandersWomen.
