Events > TEDxKrakówCinema September

TEDxKrakówCinema - a new initiative from TEDxKraków

We’ll be getting together to watch TEDTalks and TEDx talks and sharing the TED experience with Kraków

Each time we will focus on a different topic.

Why TEDTalks?

We’d like to create a comfortable space in Kraków for creative debates about the role of technology, education, human behaviour in creating a more harmonious future, where ideas are the source of intelligent and constructive collaboration rather than conflict.

This month

or: How (not) to choose Kraków's future

With expanding globalisation, the fact that cities becoming increasingly powerful entities in their own right, and the fast-approaching local government elections in Poland, it seems a good moment to reflect on our rights as citizens of this city, to influence its future. What kind of people should we elect to represent us and manage the mechanics of keeping Krakow going? Do we want pragmatists, or visionaries? What are the key needs that have to be satisfied so that Krakow becomes “future proof” and a city that works for everyone who lives here? And finally, what should we know about the power we’re about to hand over, and how should we monitor how it’s used?

The meeting is going to be led by two of our team members who are both fans of urban life: Ewa Spohn, a born and bred Londoner who has been curator of TEDxKrakow for the last 4 years, and Rafał Sanecki, who looks after our sponsors and blogs at miastamaniak.

Whether you’re a committed voter or an ambivalent transient, join us from 6.30pm on Tuesday 2 September at Pauza In Garden (ul. Rajska 12, entrance from ul. Szujskiego) for a discussion on where we’re heading (we'll start with the TED Talks and discussion at 7pm sharp). The number of spaces is limited so registration is essential. The discussion will be in Polish but contributions in English will be welcome.
