About TEDx Heraklion


Walls exist to separate us. When they fall, though, they exist to connect us too.

Walls become bridges and seek to be explored, to be overcome.

Geographic walls, but also personal, prejudices, walls of stone, or ideological.

Something new and wonderful is coming, outside of them. Something innovative, ‘ours’ is seeking a way to exit, and disseminate everywhere.

With the venetian walls as our trademark, we make a step further.

TEDx Heraklion goes this year “Beyond the Walls”.

There, where the unknown lies: New destinations, new ideas, new realities, await for us to discover them.
