18 February – TEDxGöteborg Disrupting Status Quo @Gothenburg Concert Hall

We grow up being told what to do, believe, and feel about things. Parents, teachers, media, and politicians all provide us with a vision of how to live our lives and what paths to follow. And so… we graduate, find a job and settle down with a partner we (hopefully) love. But what if there are other, more unconventional, ways to get things done in life?
