The TEDxBrayford Pool Salon series returns to explore our post-pandemic world. Small, intimate and exclusive TEDxSalons use screening of incredible TED and TEDx Talks to spark conversation.

We're exceptionally excited to return to Mosaic Digital Hub this year to kick off our first salon of 2023 as part of the Making A 22nd Century City series. We'll focus on Lincoln as a vibrant, modern urban centre and exploring heritage, urban redevelopment, education and much more through TED talk screenings and workshops.

Meeting at Mosaic Digital Hub we'll kick off the event with a walking tour of the Cornhill Quarter led by Lincoln Free Walking Tours and Ben James, Mosaic Digital Hub's Engagement Manager, to explore some of our city's past, its present and fuel your ideas for the future.

After the tour, we'll return to Mosaic to screen two great TED Talks to spark conversation before inviting you to consider what the future redevelopment of Lincoln could look like and how we can make our city ready for the next century through a hands-on team activity before sharing your ideas with each other.

We'll be joined by an incredible panel of experts to help dig deep into some of the key ideas of the day and help you explore what it means to Make a 22nd-Century City.
