About TEDxWolverhampton

The first ever TEDxWolverhampton took place on Saturday 6th April 2019 at the Light House in Wolverhampton.

Our mission was to uncover, support and promote ideas worth spreading. With this in mind, out theme of Mind The Gap – Building Bridges explored the gaps that exist in our knowledge, understanding, society, communities and relationships and discovered how these can be bridged.

Our line-up of amazing speakers caused our audience to think, captured their imagination and inspired them, along with several local artists and performers who entertained throughout the day.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Our event is called TEDxWolverhampton, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
