Berklee To Host its First TEDx Event in June

Berklee College of Music will host its first TEDx event, TEDxBerkleeValencia, at its campus in Valencia, Spain. The conference, themed Creative Catalyst, will take place on Saturday, June 21, beginning at 4:00 pm, in the Aula Magistral Theatre of the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia’s City of Arts and Sciences.

Following the central foundation of TED—"ideas worth spreading," TEDxBerkleeValencia will celebrate creativity in all its forms, explained Emilien Moyon, program director of Valencia's Global Entertainment and Music Business graduate program at Berklee Valencia."We intend to explore the creative challenges and inspirations that provoke groundbreaking innovations in different disciplines—including the arts, science, sports and business models—leading to revolutionary changes in perception that shape our history by dissolving the status quo."

The conference will feature talks by leading international thinkers, innovators, and artists who represent diverse creative fields. Speakers include Spanish artist and designer Javier Mariscal; Sonicbids founder Panos Panay, who is leading Berklee’s new Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship; and Spanish film composer Lucas Vidal, among others. Each will cover personal stories, explore ideas and share fascinating contemporary examples that are driving our society towards new, undiscovered heights.

Berklee students and faculty will also participate through presentations, and live musical and dance performances.

"The city of Valencia thrives on creativity, and it is by design that TEDxBerkleeValencia will celebrate its inauguration on June 21, which is European Music Day," added Moyon.

Tickets for the event are available via the TEDxBerkleeValencia website and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. A limited number of early-bird tickets are available at the discounted price of 15 euros until June 8.
