Kiran Shiva Akal

Kiran Shiva Akal is the founder and president of Infinite Worlds Inc. and has operated in creative entertainment projects from a design and consulting perspective since 1989.
  • Location: TEDxPortofSpain 2011

He read medicine at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin Ireland, and was going on to pursue a second professional degree in Architecture when he entered a creative competition held by UNESCO to celebrate the “Decade of Culture” and won.

He has since held a creative director’s position for the Bastille Day celebrations in France, which set the tone for future projects that invariably involves architecture, performance and technology, integrated in highly innovative ways. This led to his ongoing affiliations with some of the most respected intellectual sources in areas of material science, computer technology, structural engineering and animation, who now form part of his resources for project development and execution.

Kiran is currently heading up the Atma project. The multi-million dollar enterprise will unveil a theatrical facility unlike any other in the world and house a spectacle that will be the Flagship resident show. The project is a closely guarded secret and promises to revolutionise the art of live-entertainment, as we know it.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPortofSpain, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPortofSpain event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Learn more about TEDx. Learn more about TEDx
