– As published by TEDxEindhoven –
In 2017 the theme for TEDxEindhoven is Lightbulb Moments, focusing on ideas that illuminate, energize and enlighten. Eindhoven, also nicknamed the City of Light or Lichtstad , is the birthplace of the first Philips light bulb factory, established in 1891. The lineup of speakers for this year’s event includes internationally recognised teachers, strategists, professors, hackers, award winning artists, researchers, photographers and dentists. They all have ideas worth spreading and they will all share their Lightbulb Moments at TEDxEindhoven 2017.
Why Eefje was invited to TEDxEindhoven
Calling something fake news might already be old news. Then again, how we make sense of our reality through media, such as news, is ever changing. New forms of media allow us to tell us our stories in new ways and potentially reach millions or even billions of people. The way we convey our ideas through media technologies is becoming non-linear, interactive, multi-channel and (to use the latest term) transmedia. We’ve invited Eefje to speak on this changing landscape and give us some insight into how we might be telling our stories in the future.
