FIND YOUR OWN ROMAN PHOTO • PHOTO CONTEST
Find your own Rome Photo is a photo contest that all the participants in the TEDx Roma conference are invited to join during the three-hour tour inside the eternal city: while capturing photos of their favourite place in the city and sharing it on social networks, all the participants will contribute to the promotion of the Italian cultural heritage
In these last ten years, our aim has been to create a community of people who act and think, connected by the passion of spreading ideas to achieve a better world. This has been our arena of experimentation and trust, but time passes quickly and we need to move towards a new level, where we can turn what we have learned into something that has a strong impact. How can we transform our knowledge into our objectives? What have we learned from the past and what will be our role and mission in the future? How can we understand what objectives to focus on in order to reach a more conscious and autonomous society?
We are all connected. Together we can reach a new level of knowledge and expertise, a space of interaction and synergy. It should be a space shaped by what we learn as a community. A community that acts, thinks, and moves, but above all comprehends thoroughly.
Rome is the historic city par excellence. Passing through kingdoms, republics and empires, the Romans themselves were aware that learning from history was the key to knowledge, so much that Cicero used to say “Historia magistra vitae“. Today a lot has changed. The possibility of being online, indeed, and of sharing this knowledge must be put to good use more than ever.
Find your own Roman photo is a photo contest that will award a prize to three photos taken and shared during the tour. These pictures will have to focus on one of the streets, squares, views or sceneries that most impressed the observer because of their capacity to evoke the city’s history and to awaken the need to spread knowledge online.
