"In an era in which mass media with widespread speeds and widespread radius are winning, they are at risk of limiting all communications to a uniform level, the use of literature is that to link different things to different things just because they are different. And not in way which not only do not reduce their differences, but, according to the nature of the written language shows their differences more clearly. "
This is a piece of the book Six Notes for the Next Millennium by Italo Calvino on the importance of literature. In today's world, with different media at a much faster speed than any other era in history, which are in an effort to unify communications, the TED and TEDx media can play a key role in avoiding this widespread uniformity. This media tries to give valuable ideas to the people of the world in a pure and creative way and to create a dynamic platform for dialogue on a global and local scale.
Considering the approach of the Pars University of Art and Architecture, which is worthwhile for new ideas, the Pars University's TEDx team is working hardly to make small changes in the way of thinking and The discourse of Iranian and international community by creating a platform for sharing the ideas of pioneers with people.
We hope that by holding this event, we take an effective step towards expanding ideas and transferring them to the origins of Iran and the world.
