TEDx Poster for the Future

I’ve been asked to make poster for the upcoming TEDxDiliman conference which talks about the future and how it’s here for everybody to grab and mold. This year’s TED event goes: The Future. Here. Now. Seize It.

If you’re not aware what a TED event is, you’re missing out on a humongous source of ideas and inspiration. You can go to TED.com and find a topic that interests you and learn from the seasoned players in the field and what they aspire for the betterment of society.

The concept for the poster was simple – Be a USB Flash Drive. Be a flash drive that contains what may affect the world-to-be.

Let’s all be USB Flash Drives. What we contain varies from each and every individual. Some contain a means of law and order, some are made to design, some to establish our sense of communication, some simply a virus of some sort to destroy, and so on. The future of this planet relies heavily on each USB that resides in it. Every bit of the Tetris puzzle body is every bit of you and what you know. It’s totally up to you which ones you’re gonna upload onto the motherboard… or in this case, Mother Earth and its inhabitants.

This year’s TEDxDiliman will still be held at the Malcolm Theater in the University of the Philippines at September 15, 2012. For more info you can visit their Facebook Page

How Art and Culture Can Change Our World

I am a big fan of TED. I watch a lot of its talks online and it’s only recently that I realized that a TEDxManila will be held – TEDxDiliman to be exact!

The TEDx are events being held on a local scale and on October 8, 2011, it will be held in UP Diliman with the theme: How Art and Culture Can Change Our World.

One artist recently put it to us that “Hope starts when people work on changing how we think. This is why art is important. Art is the expression of the ideas and aspirations of people, and they form the foundation of culture.”

Confirmed speakers for this event are:

Glecy Cruz Atienza
Nina Lim-Yuson
Rico Gutierrez
Auraeus Solito
Lourd de Veyra
Noel Cabangon
Fernando Sena
Patricia Evangelista
Roby Alampay
Bogie Ruiz

As we know it, the event is invite-only. Excited because yes, I fortunately was given an invite :)

Definitely excited. This theme is very much suited for the likes of me, as well as you reading this blog.
