Article: Robert Tercek – Reclaiming the Power of Narrative

Robert Tercek says people are reclaiming their narrative voice, and what they’re discovering in the process is that they don’t need a store bought identity. And they don’t need the easy answers from television. They’re starting to perceive the world in a different way. They’re starting to understand the world as a series of urgent questions.


TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, ‘ideas worth spreading’. The programme is designed to give communities, organisations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
