We’ve got a broad and deep theme. Our theme,

IDEAS HIDDEN FROM SIGHT is meant to x-ray the following beyond ordinary thoughts:

1. Ideas are evolving at an incredible fast rate, such that they are almost unnoticeable by most people and most communities, even though their impacts are increasingly prominent.

2. No matter how developed the world is, a community’s development will not depends on the global trend but on the exposure of the community members to global ideas.

3. Ideas must be explored with the aims of making them tools of survival for man, and tools of development for the community. A crude idea is still hidden, a refined one is exposed, and therefore it is of much benefit to all.

Expect great speeches, probably from your next-door neighbour!
