Nathan de Groot is a Dutch urbanist/journalist/optimist. In 2013, he graduated from the Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture & Design in Moscow. The collective research project ‘Foresight in Hindsight’ culminated in an interactive exhibition and publication presenting past views of the future. Under the name Assembled Ground, a new collective with three architects, he produced a successful entry for the Vision Competition of Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2013. Before, he contributed as a blogger to The Pop-up City and as an editor to Huisboomfeest, an urban art project by Wapke Feenstra. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
