We want to thank everyone who participated in TEDxBasel 2016.

On the 28th of May 2016, TEDxBasel took place in the Musical Theater Basel. With an audience of over 500 people, the day was packed with a fascinating range of speakers, live performances and opportunities to interact. Our 17 live talks covered a wide range of subjects and great ideas, from comparing a body to a musical instrument to an Auschwitz survivor story and an interactive Virtual Reality performance, a hugely entertaining day was had.

In addition to the live talks, one audience member was given the chance to talk onstage along with the speakers and share their own idea. This person was chosen by fellow audience members who voted for the best pop-up talk.

Our 2016 TEDxBasel event would not have been possible without the generous support, encouragement and of course contributions from our speakers, our volunteers and partners





Newly Swissed writer Idit, also know as Kobrini, joined our audience and perfectly summed up the day in this article.
