TEDxGhentSalon: The importance of human connection

Sold out

Due to limited capacity of the venue, we were only able to make 100 tickets available. Within 45 minutes after opening registrations, all of those were gone!

When: April 25, 2016

Where: 7pm at the Backstay Bar in Ghent

Today’s society is fast paced and technology enables us to connect with almost anyone, anywhere and anytime. Facebook, Skype, Twitter and Instagram are our tools to “update our status”, have “skype dates”, “share tweets”, and “<3” other people’s pictures. Too occupied by communicating online, we often forget how rewarding a good face-to-face conversation can be and how important human connection is for our own well-being.    

During this TEDxGhent Salon you will learn how you can skip awkward small talk, understand why being vulnerable can be a good thing and be surprised how a magician can make a blind man “see”. The videos we selected will be presented to you in the cozy atmosphere of the Backstay Bar in Ghent.   

TEDxGhent Salon is a free, informal event where everyone is welcome. We watch, listen, talk and get to know other like-minded people. We frequently select a topic and gather in a cafe to watch the best TED(x) talks about it.

Since the Event is limited to 100 people we kindly ask you to register here and hope to see you at the Backstay Bar!  


This TEDxGhent Salon will take place on the 25th of April at 7PM.
