Salon events are often small weekly or monthly events that keeps a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events. It’s a unique kind of gathering that TEDx organizers hold which allows the conversation to continue, in person. At a TEDx salon, attendees watch TED Talks, sometimes host a few speakers and have informal discussions about the talks they witnessed. Salons re-engage the community and team during the time between official TEDx events, and spark discussion on issues of interest to the local community. In 2015, TEDxDelft will host Salons at the Theatre de Veste, organized jointly with Studium Generale.
The theme for the 2014-2015 Salons is Crossing Bridges. As you may have noticed, there is a literal bridge that separates the city centre of Delft from the campus. And there are other separations too. Between the students and the residents of Delft. Between women and men. Between the internationals and the Dutch. We want to bridge that gap and offer an event and space that everyone can enjoy.
