Inside the unique premises of Cretaquarium, the first TEDx Heraklion sought to present creative voices and stories of proactive people. Its main theme was Crossroads, as it was inspired by the nature and character of Crete – a crossroad of cultures, due to its geographical location. To cite the TEDx team: “Crossroads are an intersection in time and space. Crossroads are also about choices. In the heart of the Mediterranean, lying on top of two tectonic plates and three continents. A historical crossroad of cultures, where words turn into tunes and flavors. Eyes are looking at the stars to find their path. Ideas that meet other ideas, bodies and souls that get together to make something bigger and stronger. Make a stop at the crossroad and listen. All coordinates lead to a common point ‘X’”.

Every End is A Beginning
Saturday 11 May 2014
Where do things end and when do they start? How can an end become a source of inspiration and how can a beginning mark an end? Where do we start from and how many times can one make a new beginning in their lives or put an end?
TEDxThessaloniki tried to answer these questions through the stories of its speakers, all inspired by the words of T.S. Eliot: “What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.”
