Before our main event, we prepare with great enthusiasm various creative projects. One of them is The Xpressions Project which started on the occasion of the International Solidarity Day on the 20th of December. It touches upon the difficulties we deal with in a time of pandemic and socio-economic crisis. We have often faced challenges and demanding situations, from which we emerged unscathed, turning each challenge into an experience with a positive sign and an idea/story worth spreading. The TEDxUniWA organizing team talked to people from all walks of life who shared their stories, thoughts and feelings and proved that humans can always make leaps faster than decay.
