Many hands

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

This year our mate Andoitz Telleria will be one of the speakers at TEDxBrighton 2014 – Many Hands, he’ll talk us about the innovation process we made to create Axalko’s products.

The speeches will be looking at the prevalence of technology in the networked age, how our social networks can leave us feeling more isolated than ever and how, in our world surrounded by screens, we are driven to desire the physical. We’ll be exploring how intimacy looks in the modern age along with ideas of connectivity across distance, flash mobs, subcultures, the maker movement and how skills once commonplace within our locale, have become rarities akin to art. The ideas lab will be running in the Dome foyer throughout the day and aims to be a soap box for the very best ground breaking inventions, designs and new technologies from the South East and beyond.

TEDxBrighton is a one-day conference held at the Brighton Dome Concert Hall. This years event is held on Friday, October 31st. The event will showcase influential speakers with connections to Brighton. TEDxBrighton’s inspiring live speakers will represent a range of backgrounds, interests, disciplines and perspectives, combined with some classic TEDTalks.
