About Event

TEDxWroclaw is an opportunity to meet the greatest visionaries, the most fascinating speakers and the most interesting figures who, during an 18-minute speech, inflame the public with inspiring speeches about their passions, revolutionary discoveries, private and extraordinary experiences.

TEDxWroclaw will take place on Saturday, July 5th, 2014 in Wrocław Philharmonic. The main theme of the conference is: The Adventure of Life. This international meeting with a diverse group of speakers will be held in English.

TEDxWroclaw is going to be a full day event, so please apply only if you are able to attend the whole conference.

The cost of the ticket is 50 PLN.

For those of you who will not get to the main event, we are preparing a simulcast event at which you’ll be able to watch the TEDx Talks live, engage in conversations with other people, talk to speakers and participate in fun activities. It’s going to take place in Strefa Kultury Studenckiej at Wroclaw University of Technology at the same time as the main event.
