TEDxBath returns with Echoes of the City
Bath will celebrate TEDx’s 10th birthday with an event themed "Echoes of the City”. Ten speakers will explore the theme from a variety of unusual, exciting and provocative perspectives. TEDx Bath 2019 will be at The Holburne Museum on the afternoon of Saturday September 21st.
TEDx brings the spirit of TED (Technology, Entertainment & Design) to Bath. TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading to local communities around the globe. TEDxBath is organised by creative, business and health professionals who are looking to discover ideas and spark conversations in the city. TEDx events include live speakers as well as some of the most popular recorded TED Talks.
This year’s theme is “Echoes of the City”, 10 speakers will help the audience discover the hidden treasures of history that can ignite people’s imagination and open them up new ideas.
Event Lead Curator, Geoff Rich:
“At TEDxBath 2019 we’ll be asking “which of our ideas of today have the potential to influence and ‘echo’ to future generations?”. We’re seeking inspiring speakers with ideas from the fields of digital technology, business, eco-systems, inventions, education, creative arts, and well-being. We’ll be looking at how advances in technology, design and collaborations can spark new conversations with change makers, thinkers and doers and result in new ideas that can help all of us to break some exciting new ground - right here in Bath!”
TEDx Bath will be open to 100 attendees. People from across Bath, whether they are business people, educators, artists, activists, doctors, builders, pastors, lawyers, students or anything else are welcome to attend and broaden their minds, network, share and engage with the talks.
Lead Organiser, Rhodora Baguilat:
“Most TEDx events get booked out in a matter of hours, and we’ve already had a lot of interest regarding attendance at the event.
As a non-profit organisation TEDxBath is also looking for sponsors to support our event. We welcome partnership with forward-thinking, dynamic sponsors wanting to embrace new ideas, and who are passionate about involving themselves in and improving communities in Bath. There are many ways in which you can support the event, from financial to in-kind sponsorship.”
A sponsors evening will be held on May 23rd 6pm to 8pm with a brief presentation at 6.30pm at The Bath Brew House, 14 James St W, Bath BA1 2BX
Sponsors will also be able to attend TEDxBath, regardless of whether they support the event financially or in-kind. The organisers want to work with local people to deliver the best possible event both for the public and for their organisation.
