TEDxAix was conceived as a temporary laboratory to explore the concept of disruption. During this unique event, outstanding thinkers and participants from distinctive backgrounds will gather to share their ideas and avant-garde practices with personalities from the economic, scientific, artistic and academic worlds.
The day was designed to act as a catalyst for ideas focused on re-thinking established practices and incorporating them from an individual, organisational and civil society perspective, while offering a space for discussions and exchanging ideas that is outward-looking and open to all.
