Theme: Please Turn Over

This event occurred on

Chennai, Tamil Nadu

No. of speakers - 7 | Date - Sep 16 | Venue - Museum Theatre | Time - 2.30pm onwards

Amidst the storm of foreboding headlines, TEDxNapierBridge sets its sights firmly on the incredible ideas and accomplishments that are all around us. We need to only say “Please Turn Over” because India is in the midst of a global remaking.

Disciplines merge and cross-pollinate. Power and authority are redistributed. Boundaries shift or disappear. Hopes and anxieties collide. Dream and day unite. A new world is emerging at the intersection of once-separated realities.

Welcome to TEDxNapierBridge 2018 where we will seek to challenge and reshape our core beliefs about today's reality through thinkers, dreamers, and mavericks who offer bold new perspectives.

We believe that ideas get traction only when communities and families are personally involved and ideas are made real and accessible. That is why we invite you to the famous Egmore Museum Theatre on September 16 to access the people and ideas that make Chennai so dynamic. You are inviTED!
