TEDx CONFERENCE ON “THE ART AND SCIENCE OF HAPPINESS”
In April, The HappyHap Project will be participating in TEDxNewHaven, a conference exploring “The Art and Science of Happiness.” The day-long event at Yale University will bring together leaders in positive psychology, entrepreneurship, education, politics, media, culture, technology and art to consider happiness in all its forms.
Happiness is a universally shared value and a subject of study across a variety of fields. TED conferences’ commitment to presenting “ideas worth spreading” makes happiness the perfect subject.
HappyHap founder Sunnie Tölle is working with Mario Chamorro to organize TEDxNewHaven. Mario founded the Happy Post Project, a collective art initiative that spreads happiness to fuel positive social change. People from all walks of life answer a simple question: “What makes you happy?” With a Post-it as their canvas, people write down and draw their idea of happiness. We blogged about the project last year and could not be more excited about their collaboration!
Together, they’ve worked to create an event that is sure to inspire and spread happiness in New Haven and beyond.
This conference won’t just be about speakers telling their ideas to the audience. Attendees will also have a chance to share their own ideas for creating a happier world, as part of a special digital project which will be announced at the conference.
You can apply online to attend TEDxNewHaven, which takes place on April 28 at Yale University in the Sudler Hall auditorium.
