Stay connected through the TEDxLondon community

This week we’ll be joined by Lady Phyll, the executive director and co-founder of UK Black Pride and Jamie Windust, our guest curator for Pride 2020.

At TEDxLondon we are extremely privileged to have access to a diverse network of experts. And although there is no shortage of news coverage around COVID-19, we want to bring our community insights that go beyond the headlines, find answers to the questions we’re all asking and examine issues that haven’t had as much attention.

Conversations Beyond Borders is a virtual space for our community to come together, explore ideas worth spreading and help us all feel a little less alone. Since we started these events at the end of March, we have had over 6000 viewers from 54 different countries.

Hosted by TEDxLondon Director and Curator Maryam Pasha, these fortnightly webinars will be available live via Zoom and live streamed on our Facebook page.
