TEDxKotor is an independently organized event licenced by the international organization TED. TEDxKotor is scheduled for October 5th and it will take place in Kino Boka in Kotor. This the first TEDx event organized in Kotor and a second in a row TEDx event on the Montenegrin coast.
The theme of this year's event is REACHING FOR THE STARS. Our mission is to encourage people to seek positive changes and to create them themselves, to connect like-minded individuals and hopefully set foundations for the great future.
TEDxKotor is a one-day conference that will welcome 12 speakers on its stage. With two coffee breaks and launch covered by TEDxKotor for all participants, we hope we'll encourage people to connect, relax, and enjoy a full day in Kino Boka.
Marina Orsag will be the host at TEDx Kotor! Marina comes from Zagreb, Croatia and she's one of the most known stand-up comedians in the region. Her satirical humour criticizes and inspires with the aim to break away from prejudice and spread positivity. Continuing her mission to spread positivity through laughs Marina bootstrapped Studio Smijeha, the first comedy club in the region. This is her second TEDx mission, but first time as a host. In her TEDxZagreb talk in 2017, she spoke about 'Smjehotres' and why it's so important to make as many people as possible be part of your own mission. Join us on October 5th and enjoy a day full of amazing stories mixed with crazy laughing.
- Rainer Hoess (Das Erbe des Kommandanten) is first announced speaker at TEDxKotor. Rainer Höss, the grandson of Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Höss, former commandant of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. He has turned against his family and the Nazi ideology that they still embrace to educate audiences on the dangers of hatred. He is also a member of the Footsteps team, a group that uses history and education to ensure that the lessons of the past are not forgotten and to help build a more tolerant world today. Rainer and the rest of the Footsteps team are dedicated to challenging all forms of hatred and intolerance – particularly when others are targeted, scapegoated, and harmed because of their faith, ethnicity, race, country of origin, language, political views, gender, sexuality, or age.
