First-session

The second TEDxKrakówLive this year took place over the Wisla river last Thursday. This time, we met on a 125-year-old ship – Barka food. live. music. We had the unique pleasure of experiencing TED Global in the same form, as people actually attending it live at the Copacabana beach. During the two sessions we had the chance to watch, we heard about the good and the bad: conflicts in the most dangerous parts of the world, and art that makes cities flourish.

Cinema

Is there a formula through which we can find our ‘other half’? Are we capable of calculating the probability of a successful online relationship using dating apps? Are distance relationships now easier than ever? What & whom are we looking for on becoming more and more popular online dating websites ?

TEDxKrakówLive emotions have not yet subsided and we already invite you to the October edition of TEDxKrakówCinema to talk about real emotions in the digital era. The online world and new technologies give us a completely new environment  to explore relationships. They influence how we live, think, love, and interact with others. Mobile apps, social media, and different types of online messaging tools open wide spectrum of new interaction possibilities in the digital space, and increasingly become primary means through which relationships form and develop. We will discuss this phenomenon and talk about quality & the future of such relationships. We will watch also three TED Talks carefully chosen to represent the topic.

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.

The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize.


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
