I'm the idea

There is a relationship between identity and creativity, for a person with no identity can not be creative, and if he were to be so, it would not be because he independently perceives the world, but because he sees the world through other people's eyes. Thus, he loses his identity and creativity which becomes vague and as far as can be from his mind. He becomes a follower of others, repeating their words, copying their actions, creating only within their scope, whereby his creativity only materializes through their cultural formation! This is why we are here. Through TEDxSalalah we seek to seize those Omani creators, for them to be an example worth following, to influence new Omani innovators who can pursue the same approach and pave a new path for Omani innovation that stands out with its own identity and can emulate global innovation

What is 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 TEDxSalalah, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxSalalah event, TEDTalks 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.
