TEDxSamokov is an independently organised TED event.
Samokov is a crucial town in Bulgaria, historically and culturally. It has always been regarded as one of the major hubs for sports and the Arts in the country. However, after 1989, the fall of the Berlin wall and the resulting urbanisation, Samokov has lost many of its youngsters and many an opportunity for the ones who have remained.
The voracious and competent Team have set upon a journey to revive the varied cultural ambience in the town, to introduce fresh and important voices to the local audience, as well as to extract the prominent Samokov voices and present them to the wider national and world society.
Our goal is to turn TEDxSamokov into the largest TEDx event on the Balkans by 2023.
