In a "Brave New World" Aldous Huxley predicted a world in which technology is used to control society,  the state is  all-powerful, social media  control our lives, pornography and sex is  commercialised to the point of being  mainstream, babies come from test-tubes, machines are flying all around us, pharmaceuticals sedate children with everyone's blessings and corruption is the norm.  Where are we 75 years later? And which direction are we most likely to follow next?  These are the questions that speakers will be confronted with in their field of competence during TEDxBrussels 2018. It will again be a mind-blowing experience”

Message from the curator

 
 

Dear all,

I am writing you about what happened earlier this week at TEDxBrussels. For the first time in years, I, unfortunately, was not able to be present at TEDxBrussels - “my” TEDxBrussels, which I have curated for so many years now. The day before TEDx I had a health problem while travelling in the United States. During the event, I was in the hospital in the US. I only came back from the States a few days ago and I wanted to really understand what exactly had happened in my absence before reacting.

I would like you to know that now that I have seen all the recordings, the situation is clear to me and I am convinced that nothing justifies jumping on stage and drawing a performer of the stage. I know that I speak in the name of all volunteers stating that we consider this unacceptable. TEDx is about spreading ideas, not about censoring them.

As I was the one who invited Deborah in the first place, I want to apologize to her for what happened, personally and have reached out to her to do so.

To understand - without justifying - what happened, I would like to give some context to the situation. Speaking with the organizing team and with volunteers, I realise it was a case of Murphy’s Law. Deborah made last-minute changes to her performance, which ended up being very different, and much more graphic from what she had rehearsed in the morning. We normally don't accept last-minute alterations without checking, but with all these changes caused by my absence and in the rush of getting everything ready, somehow they slipped through. All this apparently was what made the license-holder so nervous - knowing there could be children in the room who could see nudity on the screen - and he might have been worried about what was going to happen next. I am sure that the license-holder in hindsight could have thought of many better solutions. Unfortunately, he focused on the fact that Deborah broke her promise and his reaction was out of all proportion to the events on stage.

The consequent withdrawal of the license to the license holder (and NOT to the TEDxBrussels community) does however not automatically imply the end of TEDxBrussels.

At the end, of course, TEDxBrussels is not ‘my’ TEDx, but belongs to an extraordinary community of volunteers, speakers, sponsors and participants who have turned TEDxBrussels into a great, and sometimes even life-changing, experience.

I hope that this community will work together to find the best path forward.
