LET(’S) GO to the Let Go Depot

What are you willing to let go, in order to truly progress? Be sure to drop something that is holding you back at our Let Go Depot and experience our LET(’S) GO theme for yourself! With inspiring speakers, interesting workshops and who knows, you might even find enlightenment here too.

What are you willing to let go, in order to truly progress? Be sure to drop something that is holding you back at our Let Go Depot in the heart of Utrecht, and experience our LET(’S) GO theme for yourself! With inspiring speakers, interesting workshops and who knows, you might even find enlightenment here too. (Beware, the Let Go Depot is now closed! Relive the inspiring experiences in the gallery or in our wrap-up article.)

To bring our LET(’S) GO theme of TEDxUtrecht to life we opened — for a limited time — a special pop up store-that-is-not-a-store in the heart of Utrecht. Actually it was a depot designed for letting go.

From Saturday November 14th until Sunday December 13th 2015 you had the chance to experience our LET(’S) GO theme yourself. And by participating, you could even claim your entry ticket for our TEDxUtrecht event on January 27th 2016!

How did it work?

Step 1. Decide what you need less of, in order to truly progress — in life, work, your relationships or finding your true calling.
Step 2. Choose a physical object that is representative of the thing you decided to let go.
Step 3. Bring this item to our Let Go Depot and place it in our Let Go Machine.
Step 4. Watch how it is being transformed into building blocks for the TEDxUtrecht logo for our event in TivoliVredenburg.
Step 5. Find inner peace and LET(’S) GO!

So what do you need to leave behind, in order for you to be able to proceed? We urged people to bring that old phone, ashtray, framed picture of your ex or whatever you wish to leave behind to our Let Go Depot. You can find examples of objects and the story of their owner in our online gallery.
