TEDxPeckham aims to connect people who have innovative approaches to life and to create a platform to embrace and acknowledge the ever-changing people of Peckham.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TED is a non-profit organisation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. At our TEDxPeckham event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
Just because you are able to share your views via social media to the world, does not mean anyone is listening or that you will be offered 'A Seat At The Table'.
People from all communities have been systematically excluded from decision making and effecting change, at "the table", a symbol of power and credibility. But isn't it time we created our own spaces, built our own tables and defined what it means to have a voice? TEDxPeckham explores the current boundaries placed upon communities while challenging the way it has always been done, offering ideas and billowing hope rolled into one.
