TEDxNicosia was born in quest for inspiration and dialogue instigation within our day-to-day lives here in Nicosia, Cyprus. It is the very first TEDx event presented on the island in 2011 as an initiative by our Founder, Marina Theodotou, bringing the TED like experience of ‘ideas worth spreading.’
Ever since our first full-house event themed Dream.Risk.Care.Live!, we were convinced that inspiration does exist and can thrive in Cyprus. The successful continuity of presenting leading thinkers, carried on in 2013 at our second event, RE-Think. RE-Generate.RE-Act.
TEDxNicosia is a non-profit initiative, organized and operated by a passionate and experienced team of volunteers. Everyone with their own superhero power, from logistics, to operational and supply chain management, to creative design and web development, to communication, film production and finance among others. All share a common drive to make a real impact in the community we live in.
