THE WORLD-famous TEDx Program is coming to Frensham this April, with a day of talks focusing on what makes us ‘Human Together’.
The TEDx Frensham event is titled Human Together: Celebrating Our Kaleidoscope, and is aiming to celebrate diverse ideas and experiences of what it means to be human, and ultimately how our shared humanity unites us.
The event takes place on Saturday, April 30 at the Aldridge Theatre at Frensham Heights School. A limited number of early bird tickets are available now, with anyone who misses out encouraged to subscribe to the newsletter for updates on when the remainder will go on sale.
The event will feature a host of inspirational speakers, each chosen to represent areas of society, culture, education and science that could benefit from diversity of thought and humanity.
The aim is to share ideas and stories to challenge and shape our thinking as a strong community that can make a difference in the world, through our collective humanity.
Speakers taking to the famous stage include Jess Thompson, founder of Migrateful; charity founder and director Alexia Quin OBE; Holocaust survivor Steven Frank, and Paralympic champion Rachel Morris MBE (pictured).
Other speakers include Ben Lindsay, Emma Freivogal, Emma Miller-McCaffrey, Geoffrey Williams, Iain Wilkie, Katie Litchfield, Lucy McCrudden, Matt Miller, Matt + Fiona, Richard Coope and Rich Clarke.
TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading”.
As a self-organised event, TEDx Frensham is being put together by Farnham resident Joanne van Campen, and a team of volunteers.
Joanne said: “We have brought together a diverse range of exciting speakers for TEDx Frensham, where we will focus on the incredible diversity of ways we share a common humanity.
“Book your tickets now and join us for what will undoubtedly be an inspiring and thought-provoking exploration of our human kaleidoscope.”
