‘Out of Darkness Cometh Light’ is our City’s motto and epitomises the optimism and vigour by which the people of Wolverhampton approach life.
Wolverhampton and its Black Country environs are weird, borderless, off-kilter places and that is why I love them.
To be honest, when I was growing up, I couldn’t wait to get out of Wolverhampton. I felt trapped, like many teenagers do, in my hometown and thought that the only way I could prosper was to leave and never return. I didn’t recognise how the city had formed me.
In addition to our speakers, we've now confirmed our performers and hosts for TEDxWolverhampton!
We are very proud to announce our speaker line up for our event in April.
