#TCBL: Our Yearly Community Event

#TCBL_2016 was three exciting days of brilliant speakers and intense interaction. Our thanks to the staff at the Textile Centre of Excellence for their excellent organisation and warm hospitality!

The main #TCBL_2016 events have all been filmed and videos of the action from Live, Talk and Jam have been edited and released on YouTube and Vimeo. You'll find links to all the videos and presentations when you read on.

TCBL_Live was a TED© style series of provocative, live presentations about general trends and issues shaping our future. World class thinkers provoked the imagination with the latest scientific discoveries and reflections about where we’re going. Click here to find out more about Live and listen to each speaker's talk.

TCBL_Talk was our conference-style module with keynote speaker presentations and round table discussions. Find out about the latest trends in T&C, on-going activities in the TCBL project and listen to each speaker's talk by clicking here.

TCBL_Look showcased our yearly update on fashion design from the TCBL community. No catwalks, but a video and exhibits to show what local creatives are producing. Click here to see more.

TCBL_Jam was an exciting interactive formula halfway between the "elevator pitch" and a "pecha kucha". Sequences of 5-minute presentations of Labs, Enterprises and Services were followed by open discussions on how to fit it all together. Click here to see and hear more.

We look forward to seeing you in Athens for #TCBL_2017!
