A Taste of Brilliant Minds

For the second year in a row Brilliant Minds is happy to offer 200 young guests from local communities across Stockholm the chance to experience a taste of Brilliant Minds.

The year´s edition will once again be hosted by tech leader Binette Seck and speaker sessions at A Taste of Brilliant Minds will offer 200 students and young adults from local communities across Stockholm the chance to experience some of the principles and thinking of the larger Brilliant Minds event. The series of panels and interviews to be held on stage will share powerful stories of bravery and accomplishment, offer challenging conversations on current trends, as well as encourage inspiring and bold plans for the future – echoing this year’s Brilliant Minds’ theme of ‘Future-Gazing’.

While the main Brilliant Minds gathering remains a closed event – with speakers including Academy Award®-winning actor, filmmaker and author Sean Penn, Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, ESA Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, Comedian, best-selling author, producer and philanthropist Trevor Noah, and NBA All-Star and Champion Draymond Green in attendance –  a Taste of Brilliant Minds will continue to be an on-record and open program, targeted at local communities, running parallel to the main event.

We are so excited to be able to offer young people the chance to be a part of Brilliant Minds – to hear from inspiring future gazers, to better understand and connect through Swedish values, and to collaborate and share their own perspectives. We hope to encourage the audience to stand up and join the conversation, and play their part in our shared future.

A taste of Brilliant Minds

Following the great success of A Taste of Brilliant Minds in Stockholm last year we are so excited to be expanding this initiative together with Chalmers University of Technology to bring the program to Gothenburg this July. In doing so we will be able to give the young communities of Sweden’s west coast the chance to experience a taste of Brilliant Minds and take part in an extraordinary event to be inspired, share perspectives and become part of the many conversations needed for the future that lies ahead.

Host, Binette Seck, will guide the audience through a series of panels and interviews to better understand, be inspired by and connect through Swedish values. The day will also entail food, drinks and music in the courtyard at Chalmers and we will end the day with a very special surprise!
