new ways to bring you inspiration for new times

Episode 2: Creativity in the new normal

Is creativity flourishing or contracting under quarantine and social distancing? What is the new creative currency? What is your idea worth when it’s all you’ve got?

New Times, New Ways series has a multidisciplinary approach. And we’re keeping it fresh, cool and meaningful with this 2nd episode. TEDxBucharest becomes for this upcoming afternoon, a center for provocative thinking and meeting of creative minds.

For the second episode we’ve mixed and matched a special hybrid edition, focused on creativity and the origins of ideas. Digital content sits well with live speakers, so this is our new NTNW event, hosted and broadcasted live from the home of our Creativity Partner, Qreator. An afternoon that promises to ignore distances, bridge people and ideas, while imagining this new normal at Qreator and online, a space connecting creatives and creators alike.

our manifesto

What are we talking about?

Creativity is entering a new, more nuanced era, while redefining its identity under new terms. Doing things that matter has never been more detrimental to the core of the creative self. Creativity is now almost a calling, and we’re here to preach this with our special 2nd episode guests.

Our conversations will illustrate how ideas cannot be confined by lockdown or restrictions. Instead, creatives fight to regain legitimacy and become more refined day by day. Enter: more sophisticated techniques, tools and strategies that address the issues of the current times.

Join us for an afternoon with unexpected stories about creativity!
