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.
