"Factory 798", also known as 798 Art Zone in North-East Beijing, is the largest and most influential art district in China that houses a thriving artist community and hosts world-class international and Chinese exhibits. It is where the event host UCCA is located. However, "Factory 798" stands far more than a place name. "Factory" being the core originator and catalyst of the modern world stands for growth, innovation and change. The three digit number "798" symbolizes the country's cutting edge art movement led by a new generation of change makers.
The theme of the First TEDxFactory798 is "Outsider Insider", with Chinese name "两个世界的边缘" (The edge of two worlds).
TEDxFactory798 embraces original ideas in a burgeoning country using the third eye's perspective to observe the ecology of design, architecture and art in China.
