Our inaugural event brought together seven of London's most brilliant and surprising thinkers, makers and performers

Reflecting the creativity and vitality of this exuberant corner of east london, our speakers tackled some of the big questions of the day: whether diversity promotes authenticity, how we create new spaces to promote community and belonging, and what it means to be a man.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a programme of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
