TEDxBrayford Pool 2022
TEDxBrayford Pool 2022 was epic and I loved every second!
TEDxBrayford Pool Youth 2022
So much space to explore ideas, discuss and collaborate with each other.
TEDxBrayford Pool Salon events are unique, intimate gatherings that spark discussion on issues of interest to the local community.
Salon events around the world range anywhere from dinner party settings to mini-TEDx conference events, and anything in between. Unlike speaker-led events salons focus on single topics.
Since introducing salon events into our series in 2018, we’ve explored everything from procrastination and education to suicide and the search for intelligent life in the universe.
This year, based on the success of our 2022 series of salons, we’re looking at Making a 22nd Century City. We’ll be breaking that down into three topics of Place, People and Population. We’re working with Lincoln Policy Hub to curate and capture these events to
share with our city council and other key parties around what we, the people, think should be happening to make sure Lincoln remains a remarkable place.
The salon events will take place on Saturdays during May, June and July.
Place will focus on Lincoln as a modern urban centre.
People will explore citizenship and democracy.
Population will dive into the impact of our ever-expanding species.
The jewel in our crown, our flagship TEDxBrayford Pool event is a multi-discipline multi-topic celebration of new ideas.
Building on the success of our post-pandemic return to in-person events in 2022, we have been granted our Summit license from TED. This allows us to create a two-day flagship event speaker programme.
With an expanded audience and speaker & performer capacity, we will be able to curate an extravaganza of ideas worth spreading cementing our place at the East Midlands leading TEDx series.
Having secured our Summit license, we’ve decided not to run TEDxBrayford Pool Youth and TEDxBrayford Pool Women events in 2023. We believe that every single speaker who has spoken at these events in the past should absolutely have been part of our flagship programme; our Summit license finally gives us the capacity and opportunity to offer speakers who would have applied for those events their rightful chance at the main stage!
We plan to offer four speaker & performer sessions across the 14th and 15th October 2023. Each session will be immediately followed with a TEDx Adventure opportunity designed to turn the ideas that the audience have just heard into actions through hands-on workshops, tours and discussions.
