"The goal is not to turn kids into your kind of adult, but rather, better adults than you have been. Progress happens because new generations grow and develop and become better than the previous ones.”
From Adora Svitak’s talk “What adults can learn from kids.” In her talk, Adora makes a case for why adults shouldn’t underestimate kids. And they shouldn’t. Kids are doing amazing things. Let’s just take a second to think about how Adora organized her first TEDxYouth event when she was just 12.
This weekend, young people around the world are attending, organizing, speaking at, and watching TEDxYouthDay events — TEDx events dedicated to the ingenuity of kids worldwide. Every year we’re taken aback by the amazing things that come out of these events, and we think you should be, too. Find a TEDxYouthDay event near you to attend or watch live online here.

"My images are a reflection of my passion for architecture, graphics and "ordinary" people." Frédéric-JG Blanque is a French photographer from Toulouse, currently working and living in New York city. The inaugural objectivity of some of his visual urban compositions is somewhat reminiscent of the Düsseldorf School. Others represent the modern city in a way which initially seems conventional, even reflecting a fascination for the American Way of Life, or an imagined convening of the Lost Generation. Instead, they should be understood as an ironic take on both the images much loved by home department stores and all forms of nostalgia. Blanque is not interested in depicting reality, an idea he opposes, but in constructing his own reality, which has much more potential.
Architectural photography as it is presented and crafted by Blanque becomes an ode to living matter. The Business District series is a metaphor for the world economy. Buildings blaze with fire, melting, dissolving, and sometimes sinking… yet we need not despair. They remain straight and imposing. Our sincere thanks to Loïc Arnaud for this Curator’s Monday.
