Beata Bocek is a self-taught Czech-Polish musician. At the age of 14 she discovered the accordion and guitar and started composing. What she lacks in technique, she makes up for with emotion, earthiness and open-heartedness. Her record Ja tutaj mieszkam was nominated for the Anděl music award.

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBrno, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBrno event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. More about TED a TEDx
