TEDxSingapore's 13th idea event

Perspectives Without Borders

2-3 December 2011

Who are the women leading change? What ideas are they championing? How are they shaping the future?  Global TEDxWomen continued amazing conversations with over 100 communities that TEDWomen brought together in 2010, re-connecting with numerous TEDx events around the world, including us in Singapore.

Our 13th idea event, TEDxSingaporeWomen, was a collaborative event with TEDxWomen and over 80 TEDx events across the globe. In Singapore, we watched  brand new TEDxWomen Talks from New York and Los Angeles, and also heard dynamic and passionate local TEDxSingaporeWomen speaker and artistes who shared their ideas, talents and endeavours with Singapore and the world.

Dynamic and passionate local TEDxSingaporeWomen speakers and artistes shared their ideas, talents and endeavours with Singapore and the world. These are women who challenge what you think you know with their experiences, their accomplishments and their insights. An activist on how something as basic as access to proper sanitation can change the course of a life. A martial artist on how to overcome stereotypes and live your passion - and kick butt while you're at it, and other women who are making a difference.

The evening ended with a Think+Eat+Drink Party, with lots of mixing and mingling among thinkers and doers, visionaries, passionate people of  TED community in SIngapore.
