TEDxEuston: Dreamweavers will be the official meeting point for all who share intellectual curiosity about Africa. A space for introspection, and the delicate interlacing of all the ideas that are currently confined to our imagination.

We have taken great lengths to bring together a selection of speakers who transcend beyond university degrees or job titles. They are multi-layered individuals who have intertwined all that they are to envision new realities for the Continent, diaspora and beyond.

In our 9th year, we call upon our community to leave behind labels, imposed or assumed, as we forge ahead with a theme that signifies the point of intersection between unbridled aspiration, and tangible activity.

So come as you are and join us for TEDxEuston: Dreamweavers as we invite you all to extend your imagination and become weavers of dreams.
