More 2012 speakers announced

In two weeks’ time we will welcome some eight hundred artists, entrepreneurs, scientists, social activists and other thought leaders to the third TEDxWarsaw.

This year’s speakers and performers will include Karolina Glazer, rising star of Polish jazz, fresh back from a successful tour of Germany. We are sure she will surprise and delight you with her performance.

The Chief Rabbi of Poland Michael Schudrich will recount some of the personal stories of people he has encountered over his ten years of serving Jewish communities in this country.

Sociologist and percussionist Kuba Pogorzelski will take us on a musical whistle-stop tour of West Africa. Peruvian master storyteller Pepe Cabana Kojachi will present stories from his homeland using a traditional Japanese medium.

Ola Lazar will journey with us through her long and wonderful experience with writing about food, and German industrial designer Tom Bieling will demonstrate communication technology for people with physical disabilities.

This is your last chance to register – we are closing the registration list tomorrow, March 8.

Oh, and one more thing. More than anything else, TEDx is about participation. Do start conversations on Twitter using the hashtag #tedxwarsaw or drop by our Facebook page (thanks for the three thousand Likes as of this morning, everyone!) And participants will be directed to an online tool which will enable you to make contact on the day, compliments of our partners at Confected.
