This month Sarah will be facilitating a salon looking at how in a world where mental health is talked about more openly than ever before, why are suicide rates continuing to soar?
TEDx Salon events are unique, intimate gatherings that spark discussion on issues of interest to the local community. Salon events around the world range anywhere from dinner party settings to mini TEDx conference events, and anything in between. Our monthly salon events are informal gatherings over pizza and drinks that feature screenings of existing TED Talks around a single topic. Please note, that these events do not feature live speakers.
This year, we'll have an overarching theme to our salon series. In celebration of the tenth anniversary of the TEDx programme we'll be part of something "Bigger Than Us". The political and technological turmoil of the past few years has had unexpected consequences: it’s causing us to ask bigger, deeper, more challenging questions. Like … Where is this heading? What really matters? Is there more I should be doing?
We're really proud to co-curate these events with the audience - at each event the participants have the opportunity to vote on the next months topic and to suggest topics to be voted on. Over the cause of our salon series we'll be encouraging you to think about those bigger questions.
