This TEDxLeicesterSalon gives people a chance to hear about fantastic examples of social impact brought about via the power of art and creativity. Guest speakers will highlight their ideas and visions of how creativity can be a vehicle for change in our communities.
Following the presentations from the speakers there will be the opportunity to connect with other social innovators and creatives from around Leicester and beyond to explore avenues for converting ideas into reality.
*Food and drinks are available to order from the venue. Please arrive early to ensure you have time to purchase a drink and be seated for the first guest speaker at 6pm.
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 TEDxLeicester, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxLeicester event, TED Talks 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.
