TedxKabul

Yesterday has been a day of food for thoughts. We’ve had the privilege to be among the attendees of the first Tedx in Kabul.

The event provided an important overview on the state of the art of the debate around cultural production in the city.

A lot of people from a variety of backgrounds are discussing the present and future of the country taking into account the importance of the cultural dimension beyond questions of tribal identity and religion. There is a lot of taking about “showing a different face of Afghanistan”, of moving away from a representation that is solely made of war, violence and terrorism.

Being part of  such a debate is both challenging and exciting. It pushes us to constantly interrogate the nature of our work and makes us think very hard about what can be the original contribution that our work can bring to the discussion.
