TEDxLingnanUniversity presents talks on the theme “Unbelievable”

TEDxLingnanUniversity annual mainstage conference was held on 18 February.  The theme of this year’s talks was “Unbelievable”.  The event attracted a full house with staff, students, and members of the community to hear from speakers about a wide variety of innovative and revolutionary concepts in the worlds of business, visual arts, palaeontology and more.


The event had three main sessions which focused on “Unbelievable Empowerment”, “Unbelievable Innovations”, and “Unbelievable Journeys”.  The event kicked off with a presentation from TED Fellow Elaine Yan Ling Ng, founder of The Fabrick Lab.  She shared about her innovative approach to textile design and production in China.  Renowned Hong Kong filmmaker Nicola Fan depicted her rabbit hole moments which ultimately took her to direct the critically acclaimed documentary She Objects for the Women’s Foundation.  Other highlights included the chance for non-Cantonese speakers to discover the musicality of the language from linguist Tiff Chan, and to take an inside look at some of the forgotten history of Hong Kong by courtesy of two masked members of HK URBEX.


True to the TED mission – “Spreading ideas” – the event also featured several breakout sessions. These provided a chance for the audience to ask the speakers questions or discuss the event with other audience members.  To learn more about the speakers, please click here for the event’s official website or visit its YouTube channel for these and past event videos.
