(24 September 2012)


After a series of successful TEDx Events in the United Arab Emirates, the inaugural TEDxSharjah event which carries the theme "A New Dimension," will take place on September29th at AlQasba Theatre. TEDxSharjah is an independently organized event licensed by TED.

"Our theme is inspired by the city of Sharjah. Sharjah is becoming new and modern while preserving its cultural identity. Likewise, people can discover new dimensions in their lives and careers while being themselves", said Wafa Khalfan, TEDxSharjah Curator.

For the first time among TEDx events in the UAE, TEDxSharjah provides the deaf and hard of hearing with American Sign Language and Emirati Sign Language interpretations during the event.

Mr. Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, Chief Operating Officer at Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), commented that Al Qasba’s sponsorship of TEDxSharjah is part of its strategy of active involvement in community activities and is in line with our policy to support all such quality projects and activities in our capacity as a main partner in all development activities being hosted in the emirate of Sharjah.

"We are constantly aware of the urgent need to sponsor such conferences, as they present stakeholders with an invaluable opportunity to benefit that from the exchange of knowledge and ideas. The selection of Sharjah to host TEDx, which is an intellectual and professional gathering of renowned scholars, researchers, investors, and intellectuals, will contribute to supporting the development programs in the Emirate and region. I invite everyone to participate in the event and to benefit from the expertise, innovation, creativity,and scientific vision that will be on offer," he added."

The TEDxSharjah speakers lineup includes: Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani, Captain Aysha AlHamili, Mohammed AlShamsi, Najla AlAnsari, Kevin Abdulrahman, Dr.Haidar AlYousif, Saeed AlNazari, Praveen Vettiyattil, Dr. Raymond Hamden, Mariam AlSarkal, Sheikh Salem bin Faisal Al-Qassimi, Naoko Kishida, Rabia Zargarpur, Abdul Rahman al Haddad and SAMA Quartet.
