TEDxTelAvivSalon, June 2012
A TEDx Salon is a small recurring event that keeps a TEDx community engaged between larger events.
The first TEDxTelAvivSalon, themed Incentivizing Innovation and Virtue, is impromptu and it’s just around the corner. It is a casual, by invitation, mini TEDx, hosted in a private residence by Guy Spier (TEDxZurich co-organizer) and Maya Elhalal (TEDxTelAviv co-organizer). Between larger scale open events, TEDxTelAviv Salons are designed to keep the TED conversation going, the spreading of elevating ideas by Israeli thought-leaders flowing, and the people who made TEDxTelAviv happen connected.
TEDxTelAviv, April 2010
Thriving on Turmoil
The event theme reflects the inherent contradictions that characterize Israel: ancient-modern, religious-secular, rich-poor, east-west, devout-irreverent, tradition-innovation. TEDxTelAviv will demonstrate how this diversity has catalyzed cutting edge technology, world-class research, great works of art and ingenious social entrepreneurship.
A Spring-Fest of Inspiration
TEDxTelAviv celebrates these achievements with a view towards the challenges facing Israel and the region. The diversity of the speakers, the caliber of the audience, and the uniqueness of the venue promise to make this a memorable meeting of place, mind and soul.
Our Vision and Mission
We believe passionately that ideas change the world. By combining the TED platform with the local energy and spirit, we hope that this gathering will foster innovation and collaboration that will enrich Israel, the broader region and the world at large.
