What does it take to change the world for the better? Can we as individuals really make a difference and shift the balance of power through activism and social movements? Political scientist Zacharia Mampily demonstrates ‘How activists are redefining democracy around the world’, activist Jeremy Heimans demonstrates ‘What new power looks like’, poet Aja Monet and community organiser Philip Agnew share ‘a love story about ‘The power of art as organising’ and Dolores Huerta explains ‘How to overcome apathy and find your power’.TEDx Hackney Libraries is a wonderful opportunity for local residents to get together to listen to experts talk about subjects that matter to us all. These events aren’t just about listening; the open discussion at each session encourages conversation about how these topics affect our everyday lives, inspire us to see things from a different perspective and could even spark change!
TEDx Hackney Council Libraries are inclusive events, ensuring that everyone has a voice, as we believe that personal stories and experiences are invaluable. We can learn from experts, but most of all we can learn from each other.
