About this event

We promised to spread inspiration all over Lebanon this year, and we are keeping our promise.

Join us at our next TEDxBeirutSalon taking place in a magical venue at the old Zouk Mikael souk: "Originally founded as a public library in Zouk Mikael during the 1940’s, this municipal facility was re-established in 2009 as the Youth and Culture Center."

Here is all you need to know about the next TEDxBeirutSalon in Zouk Mikael:

WHERE: YCC (Youth and Culture Center) in Zouk Mikael (a detailed map will follow)
WHEN: Wednesday 12th of September, 2012 at 8h00 p.m. (till 10h00 p.m.)
WHAT: We’ll screen 2 to 3 TED & TEDxBeirut videos, and invite you to reflect after each video

That's not all! You are invited to join us for a small reception after the salon on the rooftop of the Youth and Culture Center overlooking the Lebanese coast. Mingling with the team, networking and fun are on the menu. Believe us, you don't want to miss this.

Through TEDxBeirut salons, we aspire to bring the local TED community together once in a while until the main TEDxBeirut event happening in November of this year.

Our guest TEDxBeirut speaker at this salon is Yorgui Teyrouz.

Since we had an awesome list of speakers in our main TEDxBeirut event last September, we are inviting one of our speakers to each salon, screening their TEDxBeirut talk, and interacting with them after their talk.

And for this TEDxBeirutSalon in Zouk, our guest speaker is the lovely Yorgui Teyrouz.

We will screen Yorgui's TEDxBeirut talk that touched so many people's hearts at TEDxBeirut. After which, you can ask Yorgui whatever you want, talk to him and get updates on his activity since September.

P.S.: Bus rides from and to Beirut are available upon request. Tell us if you need a ride when registering.
