One hundred years ago, ship builders were putting the final touches to the RMS Titanic before the hull was launched in May 1911. You could have seen the ship from the Belfast Harbour Commissioners Offices. This historic building was the venue in March 2011 for the very first TEDxBelfast. We were sitting in an historical place, but we were considering the future and the place of creativity in this city.

With speakers from Northern Ireland - including some coming home especially for the event - we heard about, and discussing, innovation and creativity in, architecture, communications technology, social media, the workplace and creative arts.

And The Really Rubbish Orchestra performed on their recycled instruments.
