TEDxWaterloo 2013: chasingHOME
…Is “home” a concept or a reality? A place to begin from or a place to return to? Is home where the heart is or wherever you say it is? From our home planet to most intimate interactions in home life, TEDxWaterloo 2013 is chasingHOME and what happens when it is lost and found.
This will be a thrilling journey.
We can’t wait to be chasingHOME with you on March 27, 2013 at Centre In The Square, Kitchener.
