TEDx REAL Title Sequence

When what’s “real” is debated every day – from politics, to climate change, economics, even the nature of the universe – how can we shape, challenge or change our reality… and understand who we are within it?

In the past, our TEDx titles aimed to provoke thought by holding a mirror to the state of society: reflection as catalyst for change. For TEDxREAL, we returned to a spirit of playfulness. Instead of the serious, the sincere. Instead of a mirror, a dream.

This dream was shared by some of the best motion and sound partners in the world, and with "reality" so open to interpretation, a curated global collaboration was perfectly suited to capturing the kaleidoscopic nature of the title.
