"Naked"



Free yourself from the burden of layers. Layers of skin, cognitive biases, political views, the space between your thoughts, your interpretation of order and chaos, your preconceived truths… Remove them one by one, and amid this heavenly nakedness, reconnect with your own true self. NAKED!

TEDx Tirana: The Common

28 May, 2016

The necessity to belong to a place, a community, a cultural or national identity is at the heart of our nature as human beings, is the natural balance of our human existence. Cut off from others and from the whole, we simply atrophy. At TEDxTirana 2016 we aim to deepen our individual and collective sense of the common (in terms of place, connection and culture) through bold and engaging talks from visionary individuals. Some of the questions we are aiming to investigate deeper are: Can one be an individual and part of a collective at the same time? Are we able to manage individualism in the wider framework of the collective? How capable are we Albanians to modernize, yet to safeguard our shared values and cultural identity?

It is the very formation of such simple concepts, which can lead to openings of fresh new views and understandings to the complexities of what one is and would be. Profound reflections mean courage in thinking!!!

TEDxTirana Blissful Uncertainty?!

May, 2014

Uncertainty is " a state of having limited knowledge where it is impossible to exactly describe the existing state, a future outcome, or more than one possible outcome. " Uncertainty has a dual character On one side is mystery, fear, unpredictibility, emptiness. On the other side is creation, opportunity, challenging the status quo. In times of crisis, of political changes, of globalization, we are confronted to changes that happen faster than they ever did. We are more and more challenged to adapt and find solutions, but also to accept that nothing will ever be certain forever.

TEDxTirana Boundaries Passion Vision

Prill, 2013

" Tirana, carries in its centennial DNA the multitude of shades, colors, smells and melodious echoing of its past; from its Ottoman influence to its communist architecture, from the ancient Illyrian roots to the nowadays duality between modernism and tradition. Tirana, in its sassiness and spiciness of a Balkan capital, embraces all sort of political, religious, ethnic and cultural communities, which makes it beautifully diverse to experience but equally challenging to survive it. Among all this, in Tirana there is art, creativity, ingenuity, and passion that manages to pour out of its concrete armored neighborhoods and create positive change. With the energy of almost 1.0 million inhabitants, TEDxTirana aims to bring to the surface all the thinkers and doers that give life to Tirana's Ideas Worth Spreading. Passion is the only driving force that brings TEDx to Tirana, and let it be passion the only driving force to make its IDEAS echo beyond its borders."
