TedxBelfastWoman comes to the new Skainos building in East Belfast on Saturday the 1st of December. I am really looking forward to this event. The speaker line-up looks very promising including some well-known and not so well-known women who each have an extrordinary story to share . Stories about how they are influencing the growth of the communities in which they live, love, work and how they are actively part of ‘the space between’.
So what is Tedx ?
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The kind of environment that cultivate ideas worth spreading.
This particular event for woman “The Space Between”, will explore the belief that women are less likely to approach subjects from a black-or-white perspective because they can see the grey area in between.
There is prehaps more of a curiosity in wanting to explore what is in between extremes, to gain the bigger picture and find the areas where we need more understanding and perhaps compromise.
Women seem to always know that this is where life happens—the places in between.
I’ll try and post a review on this event to follow.
