Agnes Török – On gender-based violence as a collective problem 

Agnes is an award-winning spoken word poet, author of Happiness is an Artform, a TED speaker and obscure dragon-lover. Agnes is an expert at performed poetry which she writes and performs in both Swedish and English, with a lovely Scottish accent. 

 

Agnes has been an ambassador and activist for victims and survivors of sexual abuse for many years. She will talk about gender-based violence. How do we hold perpetrators accountable? How do we inspire people to stand up for themselves? How can we work together to come up with collective solutions so individuals have support when leaving an abusive partner?

 

Take the opportunity to see this power-poet live on October 23 at TEDxGöteborg main event Brave New World.
