You are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon at our brand new venue! Our May edition — themed On the Other Hand — is curated by TEDxTheHague.
There are — at least — two sides to every story. Which one do you want to believe? Which one suits you best? Which one tells the story you're already telling yourself? We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:
