Iris - topic


IRIS It’s a multi-dimensional notion, of which we intend on touching upon every aspect. More specifically: Iris, the ancient Greek goddess, the epitome of the rainbow and a messenger, is the connective link between gods and mortals. A nebula, a flower and a part of the eye also bear her name. The definition of iris is associated with light, as it regulates the amount of light on the eye’s retina. The goddess’s multifaceted nature was also the inspiration for this year’s TEDxAUTH event. We believe that in the same ease that the Goddess would transcend borders, our own ideas will be heard in the country and beyond. The guideline behind this year’s talks will be based on everything presented by the Goddess; the path towards the light, the discovery of aspects of ourselves, the ode to diversity as well as the human need for communication and connection are only a part of its manifestations.

''The masks have fallen'' Photo-Episode B, pt.2

...Rosalia blinked. But when her vision recovered, she was no longer in the closed and gloomy theater in which she had chosen to spend her afternoon. Its four walls had been replaced by rows of trees that spread out for as long as she could see. Its high and ornate ceiling had given its place to the...

''The masks have fallen'' Photo-Episode B, pt.1

It was one of those spring days where nature itself seemed to conspire for your happiness. Rosalia woke up quite early that morning, she is one of those people who enjoy their routine and find relief in the eternal repetition of their movements. So she made her favorite drink, black tea with two spo...

Overthinking my overthinking

Overthinking. A rather imaginative term to describe excessive thinking. Or perhaps even better I would say, overanalyzing. Over everything. You are considering and calculating every parameter in a way that probably stresses-confuses-harms you rather than leads you to a conclusion. And the truth is...

About TEDx


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 TEDxAUTH, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxAUTH event, TED Talks video 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.
