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.
