Τhe Great Unknown

The secret hero of our existence. The point of contention that changed the way we perceive the world. Sometimes as the supreme possibility for creativity, and sometimes as the greatest obstacle for evolution. In the unknown we created gods and demons, we fought, we found longevity and soon we will be able to say that we inhabited planet Mars. TEDxAthens makes a comeback and invites us to become children again, and dive with force into the “Great Unknown”. You never know, on this trip we might reach new, hitherto unknown destinations. Will you accept the challenge? 

For the first time, in collaboration with TedxAthens, we have secured limited places for the SNFCC Members to attend specific sessions, during the speakers’ exclusive rehearsal! The day before the event, we are the first to sneak into the Stavros Niarchos Hall and observe closely how the production of an event of this scale is implemented, attending the dress rehearsal from the backstage!
