TEDxDubai 2010| Narcicyst | Who We Are, When We Were-Identity In

Yassin presentation is about the pain of loss, the triumph of family and the duplicity of identity in the information age. Performing with his back up band "The Fridge", Yassin will be inviting you into his living room, serving you chai sweet enough to make you forget about the bitter global arena. With musical performances, poetry and spoken word, The Narcicyst is bound to make you stare into your proverbial man in the mirror and ask, am I really who I think I am or who they want you to be? Yassin Alsalman is an Iraqi-Canadian that grew up between the Arabian Gulf and the Fleuve St-Laurent. With Montreal as his home, Dubai as his home away from home, and Iraq as his motherland; Yassin finds solace and belonging in music and the complex history of immigration, reintegration and culture. ------------------- The theme for TEDxDubai 2010 is REBOOT. But what does it mean? For the technology addicts, it is a way to prompt a fresh start. Sometimes there is nothing else one can do other than start again. REBOOT is sometimes forced upon us, so we should celebrate and share the events that prompt a fresh start, the failures that inspire new ventures and the ideas worth spreading from that journey. When we Reboot we embrace failure and celebrate it as an opportunity to Re-think, Re-start. ------------------------------------------------------------------ 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) Our event is call TEDxDubai, where x=independently organized TED event. ------------------------------------------------------------------ TEDxDubai is produced by Zer0 | [email protected]
