TEDxDelft 2013 | Japie Stoppelenburg – A Schoolyard Named Facebook

As we are approaching October 4, we will be announcing what so many of you have been waiting for: the names of this year’s performers…..


We are pleased to announce that one of the performers October 4th will be Japie Stoppelenburg, who describes himself as a ‘big city snob with a small country heart’. Japie is only 25 years old, but he has a remarkable CV. He is now a Lead Creative at Tam Tam (internet consultancy) who specializes in nothing and instead opts to try out everything. So Japie concepts, copywrites, designs, researches, directs, sings, dances and acts – often for clients and mostly for fun.

He is able to link his conceptual mind to things and movements we see in our society, presenting daily reality with a twist. In Dutch we would say that Japie ‘geen blad voor de mond neemt’, which comes close to ‘he does not mind his words’. He is able to bring about his message loud and clear, so we’re sure that Japie will bring some of the E from TED to this year’s TEDxDelft!

The topic of his talk will be a surprise, so we can only wait to experience what this young creative will bring us October 4th.
