Starting Tedx Youth Tabary Elhegaz was an idea from a high school student who organized the event to be the first TEDx event in Egypt organized by a public school.
The theme of the 2021 event was about breaking the status quo of what are the best jobs and colleges to join and encouraging high school students to learn more about different paths and ways of learning. Also giving them more confidence in their abilities to succeed in life and showing them how they can start and try to find their passion.
The theme was created using a style of mixed media in a spontaneous way with a hand-calligraphed inky slogan, this style embraces the idea of trial and error without fearing consequences and having the freedom to try and make mistakes. It also features the Arabic identity as the event is always keen to celebrate the Arabic language in their theme, and the characters of youth looking forward to the future.
