The TEDxFlandersWomen team is busy composing another fantastic program around six speakers, special acts & guests, entertainment, lifestyle facilities, ...

Every year we dare ourselves to introduce new ideas and get ourselves out of our comfort zone to make TEDxFlandersWomen an out-of-the-ordinary TEDx event.

This years theme is ‘Bridges’. We build them, we traverse them and sometimes we even burn them for better or worse. For TEDWomen 2017 we explore the theme of ‘Bridges’ in a city full of crossings and connections: Antwerp.
