TEDx Celsa “Go outside the box”

The theme of this first TEDxCelsa, "Go outside the box", was chosen with the aim to highlight the richness and diversity of the profiles and the path of those who pass on the benches of Celsa for over 50 years!

"Go outside the box" is above all an invitation: an invitation to DARE. Dare to explore new roads, dare to prefer adventure to comfort, or dare to be yourself by letting talk talents, creativity and dreams... in order to share with others to make them grow.

By capitalizing on your skills and your carefully composed toolkits over your studies and training, develop your own customized and unique itinerary, built on your strengths and weaknesses.

"Go outside the box" is therefore, professionally as in the private sphere, also around the box, choose to create your own path, take the chance to answer a deep call. And it's almost always in the unknown that the greatest wealth gush out.

Circus Jam

120 artists from 23 countries collaborated together to make this project possible, and I was proud to be a part of it.
