On Saturday the 2nd of March 2019 was successfully conducted the seventh consecutive TEDxAUEB at Serafio, Athens and MBA International was proud to be a gold partner. The event was organized under the auspices of the Athens University of Economics and Business.
This year’s topic of TEDxAUEB was Blank.
Blank, the beginning of every life. The human mind at birth has no innate ideas, it is a book with empty pages, a white canvas waiting to be filled with experiences, with the colors and drawings of its choice.
Creations become the creators: In a world so full that it’s that it’s suffocating, it is the blank we feel that pushes us to leave our own mark, that listens to our every thought and then calls us to fill it in. Every blank is full of infinite possibilities. A painter’s goal is to use the white canvas in order to create the perfect painting. A student’s goal is to define their own blank, discovering what their purpose is and, then, achieving it.
Nonexistence causes existence: A blank page, a piece of clay with no shape, an unfilled agenda are no more than magnets for passing thoughts, dreams, effort. How can something come out of nothing? How does it feel to lose everything and have nothing left or delete everything and start from zero? How does it feel when a person is devoid of sight?
Twelve speakers, through their personal experiences, managed to spark debate, emotion and inspiration for the attendees. The event was complimented by three performances which were inspired by the topic of Blank.
