After the success of TEDx Hiriya in Israel which focused on sustainability, its now the turn of TEDx Carthage, which will be held on the 8th of December in Tunisia. That’s right, one thousand seats were sold in under 4 minutes, and this is perhaps a testimony of how much Tunisians are passionate about womanhood and new ideas.
The TED conferences, and independently organized TEDx events, brings together passionate speakers, who’s talents offer an opportunity to inspire the next generation. TEDxCarthage is now in its 4th edition in Tunis but gave birth to a single movement of its kind in Tunisia, which led to the organization of more than 30 TEDx events in Tunisian universities, high schools, and cities.
This very special edition will bring together exclusively female participants of various backgrounds, and explore the “SPARK” (the theme for this year) within each of these inspiring women.
A “spark” can be a sudden event or inspiration that changed the course of their lives, and inspired a new purpose. A “spark” can also be the passion that, like in many of us, guides us towards a certain goal.
From the first woman in Tunisia ( and the Arab world) to direct an orchestra, to film directors, singers and activists TEDx Carthage will be a chance to witness a fragment of the passion that lies within many Tunisian women.
