Once a year, the world’s most powerful ideas are shared on the TED stage in Vancouver, Canada. TEDxDigbethLive will screen a two-session broadcast from TED2017 on Thursday 27 April from 5.30pm in the Old Ikon Gallery at Fazeley Studios.
The theme of TED2017 is ‘The Future You’. Speakers from across the globe will balance a hard look at the seismic shifts that are altering the way the world works with insights into how we can foster personal learning, growth and empowerment.
TEDxDigbethLive will screen 15 fascinating, inspiring, and well-informed TED Talks. The evening will begin by looking at the mind and meaning in an age of big data and ever smarter technologies. After a break, the presentations will explore the intersection of art, architecture, technology and humanity in our urban environments.
Sarah Benn, TEDxDigbethLive Organiser says, “Digbeth is alive with creative energy and big ideas, and on the verge of huge transformation alongside HS2 and ambitious regeneration projects. The event will be a great opportunity for the local community - a melting pot of residents, artists, designers, digital innovators, social enterprises and college students – to get together, share ideas and spark discussion as part of a worldwide event.
Everyone is welcome and it’ll be a laid-back occasion with plenty of time to grab some food, enjoy a few drinks, and get to know other people from the area”.
TEDxDigbethLive is free to attend and advanced booking is highly recommended. We look forward to seeing you there!
