As organisers of TEDxBrixton, the annual community event held in south London, we’ve long been fans of ‘Big TED’. However, like most people, we’ve never been able to attend a TED conference in person.
So, when TED offered us the chance to screen some of the upcoming TED conference, to a small audience, we jumped at the chance. Running from the 16th to 20th March 2015, the next TED Conference in Vancouver, Canada, is themed ‘Truth and Dare’. And on Wednesday 18th March, at the Impact Hub Brixton, we’ll be screening a selection of talks from it. This is a chance to have a rare glimpse into a TED conference without paying $8000 dollars to attend!
By way of marking this momentous occasion, and celebrating our recent announcement, we’ve decided to make a bit of an evening of it. As well as the screening of TED talks from Vancouver, there will also be refreshments, live entertainment and a special preview of potential speakers auditioning for this year’s TEDxBrixton.
