About this event

A line up of kids and young boys and girls will share their passions: Technology, art, dance, music, social activism, movie making. None of them is a genius. They are all normal people, who have discovered their passion early in their lives. And to find your passion when you are a kid changes everything. No speaker will be older than 20!!
