The Power of Video: A Beautiful Video from TEDxDubai

The theme of TEDxDubai this year is The Beauty of Small Things, and the event promo video is a time-lapse of Dubai’s growth over the past ten years. It’s a stunning watch, and a great reminder that outside of North America planning looks very different, (and it’s important to understand different contexts) and as planners, it’s important to be able to tell stories in multiple ways. We spend most of our time thinking through words and written text, but the medium of film can create space for entirely different conversations to occur (To read more about the event, their Vimeo page is here)
