This year’s theme is MNEME /ˈniːmiː/
Memory allows us to discuss, compare, decide, justify, foresee, and anticipate, and most importantly: it is the very baseline of our evolution and the fundamental pillar of our culture.
We forge our identity through remembrance and recollection. They define the past’s relevance and our existence’s significance in the world’s timeline. Therefore, Mneme aims to become a temporal and existential setting for consciousness.
As the event organizers point out in their press release, in Greek mythology, Mnemosyne was the Goddess of Memory and mother of the nine Muses who were originally patron goddesses of the poets of the oral tradition. TEDxNTUA will aspire to enhance the concept of “Ideas Worth Spreading” by bringing the importance of passing down knowledge into the spotlight.
Exploring the past,
Shaping the future.
This is second time that TEDxNTUA will take place at the Athens Conservatoire, a venue distinguished for its aesthetic and architecture. Athens Conservatoire was founded in 1871. It is the oldest educational institution for the performing arts in modern Greece. Famous Greek architect and former NTUA professor Ioannis Despotopoulos designed the building in Bauhaus style.
