2021 – Ctrl + Alt + Delete returns

After the chaos of 2020 and still managing to deliver an online-only event, TEDxWolverhampton 2021 was going to be simple, right?

Hi, Delta variant!

With the pandemic still affecting our daily lives and the planning of any physical event, the team was still determined to hold a 2021 event.

Fortunately, the easing of Covid and associated restrictions during the summer of 2021 meant we could go ‘hybrid’ like everything else and we returned to the Arena Theatre, this time with a live audience (be it strictly limited) and an online stream.

Some of the speakers who couldn’t make the online event in 2020 took part and we had some new faces join us. Thanks to the dedication of the folks at The Arena Theatre and a tenacious TEDx team, we were able to hold what turned out to be a fantastic summer event.

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.
