Further Information

WE ARE TEDxUoN a branch of TED.com - an organisation committed to "ideas worth spreading" & we want to SHARE some INCREDIBLE ideas with you on the 15th March...

We want our third annual TEDxUoN event to be about "Breaking Boundaries"  -   whether they are personal or global, cultural or political, we want to break them down and seek to fuse interesting patterns of thought. We want to break down barriers to uncover the unknown and synthesise the known. We want to celebrate the diversity of people and how this is so important and conducive to change.

Our event will be a day long expose of a variety of 12 inspirational speakers and 3 performance acts all in the TED style. We will have 4 sessions throughout the day, broken up by three breaks, including a tasty lunch break, with our lunch provided by the fabulous Crocus Cafe-  https://www.facebook.com/crocuscafepage?fref=ts.

In our breaks our guests will be able to experience our breakout space which will be held in the first floor of the maths building. With Pulp Friction, a fantatsic local social enterprise, providing FREE smoothies all day! So you certainly don't want to miss out!

Also within our breakout space we will have stalls for many different societies (AEGIS, STAR, Stop the Traffik, Malaysia, Astronomical society the list goes on!) and an interactive dance space where our guests can interact with different cultural dances from across the world. 

Confirmed speakers include: Nick Little from The Human Library, the German artist Gudrun Bielz, the expert in autistic spectrum disorder Robyn Steward, Aegis Trust founder, Co-founder of the Holocust Memorial Centre & brain surgeon Dr James Smith, Maddy Crowther from Waging Peace, Egyptian refugee dancer Shrouk El-Attar, Jeanne Roberts of My Sight, astronomer David Mattison, Professor Moriaty ripping the education system, the Aerospace expert Professor Herve Morvan talking on his recent project INNOVATE, Terry from Think For The Future, Gaynor Nash from Join-in Athlete and our very own Nottingham student fabulous photographer Terrence Kong!
