This year's main topic: Limits. Limits exist to define our identity and challenge us. Personal, biological, physical and social limits set by our position on the map, religion, language, taboos and social norms.

In 2014, TEDxKalamata draws its inspiration from ‘ideas’ that indicate the existence of limits and manage to overcome them.

Behind these limitations: People. People that define themselves and move within them, evolve and get dragged away with them. Kalamata hosts stories demonstrating how the impossible can become possible, in a paradoxical journey where boundaries are defined, in order to inspire rather than to define.

Guessing who the leading characters of TEDxKalamata – Limits are?
Those who know, embrace and transcend their limits!
