About this event

You are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon! Our April edition — themed Designing Well-being — is curated by TEDxTheHague regular Dorcas de Koning and generously hosted by Gallerie Lily's. Dorcas writes:

"First-world countries are suffering from a new definition of 'poverty' in the health care domain. The way we choose to tackle this problem will affect our well-being. In this TEDx session we will explore what this poverty is, and how design thinking can contribute to a solution. Health care can and should be an inspiring hospitality experience."

We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:

The Hospital Window
A patient entertains his blind roommate with stories about a couple in the park.

Catarina Mota: Play with smart materials
Catarina Mota plays with "smart materials" — like shape-memory alloys and piezoelectric structures that react to voltage — and encourages others to do so too.

Cameron Sinclair: A call for open-source architecture
Cameron Sinclair demonstrates how passionate designers and architects can respond to world housing crises. He unveils his TED Prize wish for a network to improve global living standards through collaborative design.

RSVP if you want to attend
We hope this theme will resonate with you, awaken your curiosity and make you decide to attend TEDxTheHague. To stimulate conversation, we admit up to 20 guests. If you want to be put on our final guest list, please RSVP. First-come, first-served!.

We look forward to a stimulating evening filled with spirited conversation and new discoveries.
