Archivorum is thrilled to announce our next event in collaboration with TED Countdown!
After the fantastic TEDx Archivorum editions held between October 2020 and April 2021, we are now ready to return with extraordinary events in November and December.
Countdown is an attempt to bring together anyone who wants to better understand or do something about the single biggest crisis we face: climate change.
Despite the pandemic’s harmful economic and social effects, our climate crisis has not lost its urgency. It is our obligation to engage on a path that does not bring us back to "normal" ("normal" is what got us here) but that projects us towards something "better”.
The November Edition of TEDx Archivorum will take place on the 11th of November from 3.00 pm to 6.45 pm (CET) on Zoom.

🎤 Pascal Botteron

🎤 Francis Offman
Francis Offman, a Rwanda-born artist, works with canvases with irregular contours, paintings that come from the associations of parts of vivid colors, and collage zones made with the insertion of found paper that enter the composition like rips. Offman’s pieces imply fragile references to a faraway world (Africa) and its customs, a traumatic memory and an uncertain identity; jagged, dynamic spaces that cannot give rise to an integral landscape.
Please get involved directly or indirectly with our TEDx Archivorum initiative, and let us know about potential solutions, local projects and community efforts that you personally fight for every day or are aware of. An idea is exponentially magnified when people talk, discuss and brainstorm from different perspectives!
How can we as individuals, communities and organizations contribute to shaping a better future?
