About this event
We are used to looking for art in the museums, theatres and galleries, savouring the sweetest fruits of the accomplished - the artwork. Inspired by the most remarkable examples of TEDtalk movement, TEDxRiga conference organisers have chosen to dive deeper in the process of the birth and evolution, of ideas, to touch the intangible art of doing. Being excellent is not a skill, it is the philosophy of life - the joyful excitement, undivided determination, meticulous attitude, constant curiosity, exceptional resilience and... all those intangible emotions. Each of us has their own unique excellence combination, when all that at first was just a mere pursuit turns into the art of living. Best enjoyed slowly!
