MOSAIC: is about having lots and lots of small scattered pieces that each one in its own might seem not that useful but with a little bit of potential and with adding value to these pieces and exerting effort on them; they can later on be a beautiful, meaningful, and inspirational thing. This actually can be reflected on the personal experience of people, the diversity of cultures within a nation or globally, or even on the sequence of thoughts that develop to become well structured ideas, then become more conceptualised inside the brain, and after words form a flow or a pattern that affects people around us. In the end, one will discover that each and every piece had a role that led to the bigger picture being produced beautifully.
Have you ever thought of stuff in your past that seemed ordinary, boring or even trivial back then, but started to make sense afterwards? Or felt the excitement of unrelated events in your life suddenly connecting towards a bigger
So many times, the tiny pieces that make up our lives seem dull, imperfect and insignificant. And that’s what most people see. But every now and then a few people manage to see value where others see vanity; People who make masterpieces both art and science out of these shattered pieces.
We are bringing some of these people in the first version of TEDxCairoUniversity to help you find beauty and purpose in your own unique journey! Come and be !inspired to find meaning in the little things!
!We will be waiting for you
