TEDxModaSalon 2014: “Innovation and Art for Peace”


Dear Curious Souls,

I am happy to announce you that another TEDx event will be held in Istanbul on April 26,2014: TEDxModaSalon. The theme of this year’s event is:  “Innovation and Art for Peace.”

As you would remember, the first TEDxModa event was organised last year with the theme “Empathy for Change” and many of our fellow curious souls were present at this meeting. It was a very enjoyable event!

This year as well, there are many interesting speakers and I am sure we will get a lot of pleasure in listening and watching them. (Please check: www.tedxmoda.com/speakers.html for the details.)

Please note that you need to purchase the tickets from: http://www.eventora.com/en/Events/tedxmoda. The standard price for the tickets are 35 TL and  the early bird and student price is 20 TL. (valid until this week-end.)

The event is organised at the Kadir Has University, Cibali Campus -at the same place where it the event took place last year.

So I hope to see you at the event.

Until then, I wish all the best.

With my kind regards

Isil the Curious Soul 🙂

TEDxReset 2014 : “What Now!”

Dear Curious Souls,

I am very excited to inform you that the 5th TEDxReset meeting will be held in Istanbul on April 18-19,2014 at TIM Maslak Show Center. Theme of the event will be “What Now?

There will be numerous speakers and more than 800 participants. (Please see programme below and check http://www.tedxreset.com for details.)

As you may already know, TEDx meetings are independently organised local events similar to the orginal TED Talks organised in the US.

Last year I attended the 4th TEDxReset event that had the theme: “Critical Crossroads.” 36 speakers were present including 5 fantastic music bands were present along with more than 700 participants.  It was simply a fantastic organisation.  I had the chance to meet most of the speakers during breaks and I should say, the food was absolutely delicious as well :-)) So this year, I do not intend to miss the event. I strongly recommend you to participate too.

If you are interested in participating, please order your tickets through their web site: http://www.tedxreset.com. Tickets cost 125 TL for two days (50 TL for students.)

So I hope to see you all at this event.

With my kind regards
