TEDxAarhus 2018: Look Closer

Is everything as you thought it would be? As it should be?

Look closer at the people around you. And at yourself.

Dare to challenge your first impressions and assumptions.

Your whole world could change, if you only look closer.

2018 Speakers

Sarah Louise Kristiansen

Sarah Louise Kristiansen

International choreographer

Sarah has more than 10 years of working experience as an international, and will look closer at dance in an international context. She will discuss how the dancing body is a conversational tool for connecting with people, and show us how we can learn to understand people and cultures through kinaesthetic empathy. 

Lars Schmidt and Maren Elise Skjerlie Gilling

Lars Schmidt & Maren Elise Skjerlie Gilling

Photographer & Writer

Lars, a photographer, and Maren, a writer, were brought together by stories of Syrian kids. During the last year they spent six weeks at the Syrian border talking to hundreds of Syrian families about their lives, daily struggles and the escape from the war zone.

Lars and Maren will tell you about two boys who traveled different paths from the war in Syria. Due to an unexpected turn of events their stories become intertwined later in a country 4000 km away.


Sune Lehmann

Sune Lehmann

Associate professor at DTU (Technical University of Denmark)

Sune works on understanding the mathematics of complex networks. In 2013 he gave out a thousand cell phones to freshmen at his university in an attempt to measure social networks and mobility. Zooming out with the use of an ordinary cell phone gave him a chance to look closer at the university campus from a different perspective.
