During our TEDxSaxionUniversity Brave New World event we wanted to show the audience the effort that it takes to organize a big TEDx event. It became a countdown video, personalized by all the volunteers, partners and team members. From prepping goodiebags to speakercoaching. Enjoy watching!

Organizing the VIP event: my experience

Posted on December 1st, by Annouk van der Lely in Blog. No Comments

It has only been a few days after the TEDxSaxionUniversity Brave New World conference, but wow! What an amazing experience, I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one who still feels energetic and inspired because of it.

In case you haven’t seen me around yet, I will give you a small introduction of myself. I’m Annouk van der Lely and currently in my second year of Tourism Management at Saxion University of Applied Sciences. I like to see myself as a global citizen and an open-minded, curious girl.

One of the subjects I have in school is Event management (love it!) and for this module we had to pick one event out of six events that were offered and help organizing it. Oh, I couldn’t have been happier that I chose the TEDx VIP event, because it has been an extraordinary … Read More »

A small glimpse into the world of TEDx curating

Posted on October 19th, by Nadi in Blog. 1 Comment

Hello! My name is Alexander Lamprecht and I am very grateful to be part of the TEDxSaxionUniversity curating team. I felt very honoured when Christa (founder and curator of TEDxSaxionUniversity) asked me as an alumni student of Saxion to join the curating team.  I love to reach out to all kind of events and to screen daily media (such as newspapers, magazines, documentaries, TV-shows) to spot interesting people with interesting ideas. Especially the stories about new media technologies and how the media influences our perception of new media sparks my interests.

Kick-off curating towards a Brave New World
After the Pursuit of Happiness conference in 2015 we started (February 2016) to meet officially for the first time to discuss the year programme – especially for the upcoming events in 2016. As curating our aim is to scout inspiring talents, stories worth spreading and to come … Read More »



Dorothy Oger’s poem – I SHALL STAND FOR LOVE

Posted on June 16th, by Allysia Machielsen in Blog. No Comments

For all of you who attended the Open Mic… And for all of you who didn’t. We will share the poem of Dorothy Oger. She wrote the poem because she lost a friend in the terrorist attacks in Brussels. It was her reason to write a poem – it went viral! She stepped on stage and shared her idea. Believe us when we say… it is an idea worth sharing.

FOR LOVE

I shall stand for love,
even with a broken soul,
even with a heavy heart.

I shall stand for love,
for the world is wounded.
Not just my little piece of land,
where I am mostly safe,
where I am mostly well,
but our world, everyhwere.
Every day.

I shall stand for love,
because we need mroe light,
not more deaths,
not more power,
not more bombs.

I shall stand for love,
so that our … Read More »
