TEDxHamamatsu 2016 – FUSION
Event Date: Sept. 25, 2016
Place: Shizuoka University of Art and Culture, Shizuoka, Japan
Our town Hamamatsu is often called “Manufacturing town”.
The ratio of workers for manufacturing industries (so called “the secondary industry”) is 34.4%, which is highest among the ordinance-designated cities which average ratio is 23.3%. You can see how high this rate is.
Even though Hamamatsu is an ordinance-designated city, it can be called a “corporate town”. There are a lot of small and medium-sized enterprises exerting themselves in the supply chains leaded by large enterprises.
I have been thinking if it can be possible to spread new “worth spreading ideas” of such small and medium-sized enterprises from Hamamatsu city.
To begin with, however, think the followings:
Don’t you make yourself stereotyped because your company is small or medium sized?
Don’t you make yourself stereotyped because they are large enterprises?
Don’t you know something similar cases around you?
Categorized frames may be everywhere, such as blue-collar and white-collar workers, citizens and the administration, customers and shops, subordinates and superiors, students and teachers, wives and husbands, children and parents. We might have communicated with people inside the frames without realizing it.
Why don’t you remove the frames and face each other?
Why don’t you exchange your ideas and deepen them by communicating with people whom you have never met nor faced?
With our ideas, we’ve decided the theme of this year “FUSION”.
The ideas may go different directions and each one may be small and weak… But, what if you change the direction of your idea and close to others’? Ideas which are in different frames or have no chance to meet would. I believe that the “FUSION” makes the ideas stronger, more wonderful and larger.
TEDxHamamatsu 2016 should be the opportunity where you all exchange your ideas.
We’d like to share such excitement with you. We wish your idea becomes new large one.

Fusional Experience with You
“FUSION” is the theme this year.
We TEDxHamamatsu hope that fusing different ideas would make stronger, more wonderful, and bigger idea.
To realize that, we believe that making “unpredictable encounter” and “mixing ideas” are the way among people, who are not only participants but also speakers, partners, and staff. In addition, we think it is necessary for all of us to face with ourselves, and to realize and concentrate on our own ideas, with leaping the frame of “ourselves”.
TEDxHamamatsu will provide you the opportunities to meet the ideas and others through many activities on the event day. We hope it would be a chance to make your idea bigger and change your life better.
