TEDxLASALLE is a TEDx initiative supported by LASALLE College of the Arts and Haque Centre of Acting and Creativity (HCAC). It is the first TEDx initiative presented by an arts institution in Singapore, and is spearheaded by a team of BA(Hons) Arts Management students from LASALLE’s School of Creative Industries.
The half-day event, held at LASALLE’s McNally Campus in the heart of Singapore’s vibrant arts district, offers audiences an afternoon of fresh ideas, thoughts and stories from individuals that have travelled off the beaten path. The event will challenge mindsets, inspire innovation, and foster visionary ideas within a connected community by exploring diverse sectors of art, adventure, business, social science as well as science & technology. During the talks, there were also short performances by LASALLE Diploma in Music students.
“What sets LASALLE apart is that we have eight schools encompassing a wide range of art forms and inquiry right here under one roof, from fine arts to performing arts to film and more, and it’s also this interdisciplinary nature of LASALLE that makes it the perfect converging point for a platform like TEDx. As Arts Management students, LASALLE gives us many opportunities such as this to realise our ideas and gain invaluable hands-on experience organising arts events that make an impact,” said Ruth Chee, BA(Hons) Arts Management student, from the team leading TEDxLASALLE.
“TEDxLASALLE is an exciting platform to share ideas with the community in LASALLE College of the Arts and the public through meticulously curated topics, in hopes of providing insights to critical issues. Furthermore, the TEDxLASALLE initiative aims to be sustainable, foreseeing successful editions in the subsequent years.” said Sharon Jing Yi, co-producer of TEDxLASALLE: Make Me.
