We are pleased to announce that TEDxHamamatsuSalon will be held besides TEDxHamamatsu standard event, and we would like to devote more of our energies to the community activities as this year marks the second year for TEDxHamamatsu.

Through the Salon event, which small and meaningful communication is available, we would like you to know more about our activities, TED and TEDx.

What is TEDxHamamatsuSalon?

TEDxSalon is a licensed event with permission from TED headquarters, which will be held a few times a year, which is smaller than an annual standard event.

What we do is;
to watch TED Talks
to invite a live speaker
to hold a workshop, etc
The participants can deepen exchange with each other.

We TEDxHamamatsu already had the first Salon among staff on March 14. The second Salon will be opened to the public for the first time on May 22.

About the theme “Across with intellectual curiosities”

People want to know its reason or meaning if they don’t know anything about it. We still have so many unknown things in this world even we already have such an information society. We choose and try to get the answer.

Of course there might be some biased information as people are not the same. The biased information must be your identity, and other people’s biased information might be what you need.

We would like to make TEDxHamamatsuSalon vol.2 as an opportunity to watch selected TED Talks together and meet various ideas, to stimulate your intellectual curiosities, then, to find out new things by exchanging everyone’s intellectual curiosities through discussion.
