It’s that time again. TEDxDar 2011 is scheduled for November 26, 2011. We are now accepting speaker nominations, sponsors and of course: ideas!
This year’s TED theme is “storytelling” and from this we have created our central theme for TEDxDar 2011: “Who Killed Zinjanthropus?” With Tanzania approaching its 50 years jubilee of independence, we are using Zinjanthropus – a fossil of early man discovered in Tanzania – as a metaphor for revered history and evolution as we attempt to navigate the clung-to and forsaken past as well as the future we appear to be striving for.
We invite you to help us unravel this great mystery, of both the science and the fiction, that demarks our 50 years of independence. In this unmasking of the gained and the given up, the nostalgia and the shame, we hope to birth creative engagement that will move us forward in finding innovative solutions to the challenges in these exciting times.
