Invented Here

In December 2013, the first TEDxCapeTownWomen event took place aligned to the global TEDWomen event, themed Invented Here. The event celebrated invention in all its forms. Not just technology and things, but also solutions to poverty; approaches to peacemaking; expressions of art, and, at times, our own lives. Some of the questions we asked included:   

  • How do new technologies shape our lives? 
  • How do great ideas take flight? 
  • How can meaningful change be imagined, fostered, and scaled? 

The TEDxCapeTownWomen team curated a lineup of five remarkable local talks, shared by Jos DirkxGenna Gardini,Athambile Masola, Noha Essop and Andrew Rudge
