Organs - A true story of creativity


17 min watch

Jakub Stefek is an organ student at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music, where he has been the Chairman of the Students’ Council for two years. He has taken part in many competitions and music courses. He divides his time between solitary work on his instrument and meetings and conversations with people of diverse professions, trades and walks of life. Where these activities meet, his reflections about culture and its creators come to life. Thanks to his company management studies at the Warsaw School of Economics, he slowly works on making his dream come true: to be a total manager of culture, knowing the art inside out and shaping it according to the times we live in. This is the question which, using the example of organ music, he discusses in his Master’s Thesis. The art of creativity in disciplines and times seemingly buried in history forever. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
