Transform - Storytelling through photography
TransformTalks ft. a photo competitionStorytelling through photography
Our upcoming TEDxStockholm virtual salon event will feature renowned photographers and storytellers exploring their transformative ideas that have been brought to light through their photography. We are all aware of how captivating and powerful storytelling can be through a single, or a series, of captured moments in space and time.
Our communities have faced a tremendous amount of change this past year. We may even say that we have transformed ourselves through our unique and shared experiences. These challenges (e.g., pandemic, climate) have tested us on many levels and have helped uncover our fragilities and strengths as individuals and as a collective.
But what do we really mean by transformative? What could a transformative moment look like to our speakers and even to you, our community?
Our speakers will be announced soon, stay tuned.
While the speakers will tell their side of their story on our virtual stage we will let you tell your own through our TEDxStockholm photo competition.
