Fake news. Political unrest. Climate crisis. They’re all symptoms of society in flux. The world is a messy, chaotic place full of isolation and ignorance. Working together we can overcome all things, but we need to answer difficult questions: Where is all this leading? What can I do? What does our future hold?
In a world where everyone's at odds we need to remember we're stronger together. This year TEDxBrayfordPool offers an antidote. A place and time to come together, to build bridges and reengage in our community.
Admission for this year's TEDxBrayfordPool gets you a lot of bang for your buck! Not only do you get to see our incredible line-up of 15 speakers and performers, but we've got some great workshops and break out activities planned. Admission also includes all refreshments and lunch.

In a Fishbowl discussion speakers are seated in the centre of the room discussing a pre-selected topic while the audience are seated around them. At specified points the facilitator will stop the speakers conversation and ask the audience to discuss what they've heard, then switch the conversation back to the speakers to discuss and reflect upon what the audience have discussed.
