TEDxKrakow - Richard Berkeley - Past matters

Richard Berkeley's work in Poland began in 1998 when he became a visiting lecturer at Warsaw's National Drama Academy. In 2000, he taught at the Chopin Music Academy in Warsaw, sang at the Opera Kameralna and co-founded the New Chamber Orchestra Foundation. At TEDxKrak?w, he's going to talk about another subject close to his heart: the preservation of the Polish country house. These buildings are probably our most obvious reminder of the past, of the people who came before us, their achievements and way of life, their genius. A house also reminds us, if we need to be reminded, of the temporary nature of our own existence. But it also serves to uplift and inspire, to bring joy to a colourless environment and it can even bring wealth and identity to a community. Richard spoke at TEDxKrak?w, an independently organised TED event which took place on 20 October 2011 at the Manggha Centre for Japanese Art and Technology in Krak?w, Poland. Our theme was "The New Normal" and we asked our speakers to tell us about what we might just have to get used to once the dust settles from the various ongoing geopolitical, financial and environmental crises. 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).
