TEDxSoweto 2013, took place on Saturday 2 November, 9am-6pm, at the Soweto Theatre, under the theme ‘Creativity – The answer to all questions’.
In true TEDxSoweto style, we covered the full spectrum of endeavours – our lineup included the unlikely inventor of the digital laser; the director of the most talked about TV show in South Africa; holder of the world female scuba diving record for depth; the gay couple who slaughtered the proverbial sacred cow; a gaming enthusiast who shatters more than a few assumptions; leader of the team that helped build the most innovative bank in the world; and author of one of the most widely read diaries in the world.
See the full lineup here.
