If we say the word border most of us think of borders between states we cross from time to time. Today, it is almost everyday experience for us, though we still perhaps experience the feelings of excitement from step into the unknown area occasionally. But these are not the only boundaries that limit us. Often the less obvious the boundaries are the harder their crossings are. less obvious but crossing them is much harder it is then exceeding them. And the greater the adventure and enrichment it is if we can look through them.

TEDxPrague 2013 will introduce people who are an inspiration in crossing the borders. There, we will meet scientists, philosophers and artists for who the boundaries are theme of the life as well as people who were able to find and cross the border, where nobody even noticed them. They will give us an insight across the borders of cultures, arts, physical capabilities, social space, conventions, science and thinking.

Let’s go on a journey across borders which frees, opens unknown horizons and yet undiscovered landscapes and which changes the view of what is seemingly familiar for us.
