It is relentless in its challenges. And boundless in its opportunities.
Each day presents us with a myriad of choices that we must take to navigate the course of our lives. It is but natural that sometimes in this long journey our optimism fades and is replaced by a jaded sense of our reality. However, it is critical to remember during these moments that our humanity is rooted in our indomitable spirit and though we may fall, we will always rise again." - Vironika Tugaleva
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBangalore where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBangalore event, TED Talks, videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

4. Barnaby Dixon
Barnaby Dixon is a professional puppeteer and filmmaker. Starting his career as a stop-motion animator, he quickly found that online content required a faster turnaround than animation could deliver, so developed his own dynamic hand puppets to speed up the process. Dixon’s unique designs feature in music videos, narrative pieces, and demonstrations. His audience has grown quickly thanks to strong weekly content and viral success. Dixon also won RTL’s “Die Puppenstars 2017”, an international puppetry competition televised in Germany.
