The 8th edition of TEDxUbud returns to Bali on Saturday, October 12th, 2019 from 3pm to 10pm, with the theme ‘Movement’. TEDxUbud is heading back to Setia Darma House of Masks and Puppets in Ubud, Bali—a unique museum with a mission to preserve some of Indonesia’s most important storytelling heritage.
At TEDxUbud 2019, speakers will explore ideas around movement—touching on diverse topics such as choreography and dinosaur movement, forced migration, emotional journeys, the impact of travel, social movements, and the motion of the earth under our feet. Movement is something we all share and participate in—a universal part of the human story as we cross the borders, lines and boundaries that structure our lives.
Some of our movements are deliberate, as when we choose to travel, or dance. Other movements are beyond our control, or impossible to detect. Sometimes it’s not a pleasant sensation, as when we are forced into movement to escape something, or have to push against the status quo to make a change.
When we say we are moved, we usually talk about emotion arising in our bodies, changing us in some
way. When we talk about a movement, we talk about people working together to create social change
or spread a new idea across the globe.
This edition of TEDxUbud will be another inspiring journey of storytelling, innovation, and learning. This event was created to celebrate the people and ideas that inspire us and make us think twice about the world around us. TEDxUbud events have been attended by over 2,000 people over eight years and TEDxUbud videos have been viewed close to three million times. A full list of speakers and performers
is now available at tedxubud.com/speakers.
