About this event

With several short-minute TED talks asking for blind people to feel about the world, we have also confirmed a creative director who is helping the blind to make videos exploring their life, emotions and ideas, considered the fact that most blind Chinese don't understand much English and can't see Chinese subtitles of English TED talks. The videos will be shown to the audience during his talk, and the idea of this particular talk (with videos featuring) targeting blindness itself is the main spirit we want to convey in this event. There will also be around 3~5 speakers talking about other issue like a normal TEDx. We hope to trigger public interest, and to make us all see more.

Confirmed Speakers

  • Ying Liu
    Blind photographer and film director
  • Cong Cai
    Director of ONE PLUS ONE, an NGO targeting the blind
  • Yongquan Yang
    Blind IT practitioner
