TEDxTinHuaWomen returns with its yearly sold-out event, tickets are on sale now
Hong Kong – November 11, 2019 - TEDxTinHuaWomen unveils its diverse speaker lineup with a mix of speakers, performers and two networking sessions in the community fair for the December 6 event, themed “Bold & Brilliant *Without Apologies” at sky100 from 1pm - 7pm. Tickets are available at HKD600, here: http://pelago.me/TEDxTinHauWomen
The TEDxTinHauWomen annual talks are designed to showcase women and girls as change-makers and innovators in Hong Kong, as well as to provide a platform for sharing ideas important to the community. This year’s speaker lineup includes:
A former drama teacher, the one-time owner of Fetish Fashion and minority sexuality activist, a certified counsellor and a promoter of opera and chamber music through a family foundation.
A multi-disiplinary artist who experiments with mixing different mediums such as food, participatory art, performance, sound, installations, paintings and videos.
A planetary scientist, astrobiologist, astrophysicist (and pianist) whose research is centred around the search for extraterrestrial life on Mars. She is also part of the landing site selection team for the next NASA mission Mars 2020.
An accomplished architect who was thrust into the spotlight in 2012 when she turned down her father's HKD500M dowry offer to any man who could walk her down the aisle. The complication? She is a lesbian already in a long term relationship.
A hip hop hobbyist and spoken word poet – specializing in slam poetry (a form of poetry that combines elements of performance, writing, competition, and audience participation).
An author, journalist, teacher and voice actor who promotes inclusiveness and diversity through her writing.
A relationship coach, specializing in open relationships.
Together, the seven speakers with diverse backgrounds will explore the idea of how different people with varying perspectives and views can be Bold and Brilliant in their own ways. Being Bold takes individual courage, and being Brilliant rallies others to make change collectively. Audience members – both men and women alike – will be inspired to be Bold and Brilliant without having to apologise for it.
The Friday afternoon event also features four experiential zones by JPM, Allen and Overy, BAML and the TEDxTinHuaWomen committee. The experiential zones aim to help build local communities that create exponential impact, while providing attendees exposure to local sustainable brands including Glowgear Pro, Cosmo Crew, Retykle, Redress and more.
The December 6 event coincides with the global TEDWomen event to be hosted in Palm Springs, California. Held over a half-day, the program includes exclusive streaming of talks from the global TEDWomen event in Palm Springs, a line-up of local speakers with “ideas worth sharing”, networking and community activities. The Hong Kong “Bold & Brilliant” event is one of many TEDx events happening around the globe between December 4-6 that will expand on the ideas brought up at TEDWomen.

About TEDx, x = independently organised event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TEDWomen is a three-day conference about the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers. The program of speakers, workshops, events — and daring discussions — has sparked some of TED’s most iconic moments yet.
TEDWomen brings together a global community of women and men interested in exploring how change begins: with innovative thinkers who catalyze ideas toward action. Over the past few years, TEDWomen and TEDxWomen have launched some powerful ideas into the world.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, often in the form of short talks delivered by leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED conferences, including our annual gathering in Vancouver, as well as TEDWomen, intimate TEDSalons and thousands of independently organized TEDx events around the world. Videos of these talks are made available, free, on TED.comand other platforms. Audio versions of the talks from TED2019 will also be published to TED's podcast TED Talks Daily, available on Apple Podcasts and all other podcast platforms.
TED's open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily;TEDx, which licenses thousands of individuals and groups to host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities; the Audacious Project, which surfaces and funds critical ideas that have the potential to impact millions of lives; TEDSummit, which gathers the most engaged members of the global TED community for brainstorms, discussions, performances, workshops and an eclectic program of mainstage talks; and the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED also has a library of original podcasts, including The TED Interview with Chris Anderson, Sincerely, X, and one of Apple Podcasts’ most downloaded new shows of 2018, WorkLife with Adam Grant.
