75 women (and a handful of men) joined us for a night of inspiration at FORUM Images.

We asked 4 of our applicants to share their ïdeas"at a 1-minute mic opportunity

Dorothea Piek explaied how fiding your "true color"can influence your opportunities
Lena Dannemann shared her inspiring story of overcoming the effects of bullying
Jolijn Creutzberg explained how her idea making underwear helped women participate in society
Alice Faber and Annemarie de Bie performed a snipet of the "Story of Your Life"

Then we joined the livestream session 2 for an inspirational hour of ideas, poetry and reflection. Powerful talks, powerful words.

We look forward to welcoming you again for an amazing evening of TEDWomen in 2014!

We're excited to bring you a portion of the TEDWomen2013 event directly to Groningen!

This year's theme is INVENTED HERE
The speakers will celebrate invention in all its forms. Not just technology and things, but also solutions to poverty; approaches to peacemaking; expressions of art, and, at times, our own lives. The speaker's lineup will be published shortly before the event and we'll choose the session we think will be most relevant to our community.

This is a FREE event ! (you can buy your own food/drinks at the location!)
50 seats are available by application : share with us your "idea worth spreading" and a ticket could be yours! Apply via our main website
