Now in its fifth year, TEDxBrum is an independently organised and volunteer led event, proudly based in our home city of Birmingham.
In conjunction with a global initiative to spread ideas further, the TEDx program was born in 2009 to enable individuals and communities worldwide to hold locally relevant and independent events. As part of the global TEDx community spanning over 150 countries, TEDxBrum is Birmingham’s very own platform for ideas worth spreading.
Instead of saying one viewpoint is valid and another is invalid, we learn more about reality by sharing perspectives.
Our perspectives affect all of our life experiences. They are the lens through which we see and interpret the world. Perspectives are interchangeable; individual; multiple.
Previously perspectives and beliefs have been used to divide the human race; to rule us and embolden the leaders for whom power is the most important point of perspective. The false dichotomy created by wars in all guises, whether it’s between religions, countries, or economic models, teaches us that we need to stand firm in our views, reject outside influence and be wary of people who hold different viewpoints.
Last year, TEDxBrum’s theme was about harnessing the Power of Us to overcome the embedded polarisation of ‘us’ and ‘them’, however just in the last year we have learned again how quickly rich, diverse and complex perspectives can be reduced to binary choices.
The crucial challenge for society in the 21st Century is how we understand each other, relate to each other, and talk to each other, embracing many perspectives whilst challenging our own to expose new collective spaces where we can build a city to be proud of, together.
Join us for the biggest TEDxBrum yet, at a time where these conversations between many people feel more important than ever.
