We’re now less than a month away from this years TEDxTruro. Those of you who follow our news feed will know that as a firm Stephens Scown are proud to be sponsors of both this event and TEDxExeter.
What is TEDx?
TED started in America over 30 years ago to share ideas normally in the form of powerful talks. Since then the non-profit organisation has inspired local, independently organised TEDx events, around the world.
This year the TEDxTruro event theme is ‘Wonder’, the audience is promised a journey to marvel at the wonders of the world, pause from their own busy lives and take a moment to immerse themselves in someone else’s story. All too often we are encased in our bubble of life that we miss the opportunity to appreciate what else is going on around us.
Talks from all kinds of people on crazily diverse topics. From spacecraft engineers to psychedelic drugs, plant pathologists to cake designers the talks are set to challenge your thinking and perhaps your actions.
This year the organisers of TEDxTruro are inviting people who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend the event to apply for tickets which have been donated by other attendees.
The TEDxTruro is taking place on 26 October at Truro & Penwith College. At the time of publishing tickets are still available from the TEDxTruro website https://tedxtruro.ticketsurge.co.uk/
