Supporting our Brighton community

TEDxBrighton is on the lookout for up to 10 amazing local projects, groups or charities, that can work with us to put tickets in the hands of people, who might not otherwise be able to come along. 

Applications are now closed for community tickets and our volunteer team will be reaching-out to all community applicants on or before 1 April 2022. 

Your Hosts

We're bringing together a dream team of presenters and guest curators to help tell the story of our future. 

Host: Adam Pearson Actor, presenter & campaigner

This year we welcome Adam back to the stage, after his 2016 talk 'Removing the Stigma of Disability'.  As our host, we're looking forward to Adam's incredible sense of humour and unique capacity to bring people together.

Guest Curator: Mr Gee                                Poet & presenter

Gee presented the series “Bespoken Word” & “Rhyme and Reason” on Radio 4 and was a featured guest on BBC 2’s BAFTA nominated “Poetry In The Margins”. Following-on from his 2018 talk 'Have poems, will travel', Gee will bring untold stories to the stage, where we'll hear from people he's met along the way.

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 TEDxBrighton, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBrighton 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.  You can find out more about TEDx events here
