On 1st March, 2014 TEDxNMIMSBangalore went even bigger. Taking Power as the attribute which has the ability to control environment, including the behaviour of other entities, the theme chosen was ‘Power is You’.
The theme aimed to encompass the multiple dimensions, multiple connotations and multiple contexts that ‘power’ can assume.
When we say power is you, we mean you have the resources you need to posses; all you got to do is to plug them in an appropriate manner. Our resources are our potential; it could be in music or art or business skills or may be something else. However, a great phenomenon results only when we combine our resources with powerful ideas.
The speakers from diverse background and experience which added great value to the show were:
A digital artist known for drawing amazing illustrations of Indian mythological characters as truly depicted in our scriptures, bringing our great heritage to life
An Indian Inventor, artist and engineer who builds interactive experiences blurring the boundaries between digital and physical worlds
