Transforming shadows into rocket fuel: Jamie Catto at TEDxLausanne

http://www.tedxlausanne.org - Jamie Catto was a founding member of the British dance music supergroup Faithless and has worked as a producer/composer for renowned artists such as Dido and Emiliana Torrini. In 1999, he and Duncan Bridgeman formed the double Grammy-nominated global music and film project 1 Giant Leap (http://www.1giantleap.tv/), which fuses sounds, images and words from artists and thinkers around the globe. Their 2008 film, "What About Me?", won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the Red Rock Film Festival. Jamie is also a human rights activist and conducts acclaimed inspirational workshops. In his talk, Jamie focuses on dismantling one of the greatest barriers to solving global crises: the energy we waste hiding the raw, dark, chaotic truths about ourselves instead of daring to be authentic and giving others permission to do the same. The more diversity we allow ourselves to encounter, the more unity is expressed regarding our shared human experience. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
