Berklee College of Music, the world’s leading college of contemporary music, announces the speakers for its second TEDx event, TEDxBerkleeValencia, taking place on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 3:00pm, at the Mar Rojo Auditorium at the Oceanogràfic in Valencia’s City of Arts and Sciences.
Themed Changing Currents, the conference welcomes leading international innovators, entrepreneurs, creative business people, and artists from diverse countries representing music, fashion and design, the environment, technology and religion. Discussions will address several notions of change - paradigm shifts; movement, both physical and societal; and new tendencies across multiple disciplines.
“Following the central foundation of TED and ideas worth spreading, TEDxBerkleeValencia will provide the stage for high profile speakers and creative minds to share how they are paving the way for new trends and alternative perspectives in their various disciplines and the forum to develop some exciting and interesting discussion and debate on current topics,” explained Emilien Moyon, Director of the master’s program in Global Entertainment and Music Business at Berklee’s Valencia campus.
Guest speakers at TEDxBerkleeValencia 2015, include:
TEDxBerkleeValencia will be hosted this year by the Oceanogràfic, located in Valencia’s City of Arts and Sciences. Europe’s largest aquarium - and containing representatives of the world’s main marine ecosystems - it provides the ideal setting to celebrate: Changing Currents and all that it entails.
“The City of Arts and Sciences creates constantly inspiring experiences to provoke creativity and curiosity in its visitors,” commented Henar Molinero, Director General, Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias. “Through our partnership with TEDxBerkleeValencia, L’Oceanogràfic moves ahead of its time to identify the present and future societal tendencies in fields like music, design, environment, technology and fashion. The best way to know the future is to help to create it and this event will do just that!”
