The theme for our 3rd anniversary signifies foundation.

Home doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone. For some, it’s a sense of belonging in your own body and for others, it’s a far away country that you no longer live in.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

TEDxPeckham

People find homes in different ways and in different places. Home is always changing.

This year, we discuss the ideas of home, what it means to you, where do you find it and how do you find your way back again.

About TEDxPeckham

The aim, always, is to share ideas; and to become a landing space where conversations initiated by those ideas will hopefully propel others to work towards affective change in their lives and their communities.

Initiated by Linda Ayoola, TEDxPeckham has featured the very best from the South London district’s teeming minds discussing their ideas around a broad range of issues — from a pop star’s journey towards self-discovery (Maleek Berry’s ‘Finding My Roots’), to a radio and television personality’s quest to make something of their life beyond what’s expected of them (Yinka Bokinni’s ‘The Myth of Escaping the Ghetto’).

TEDxPeckham has invited over 500 guests since the inaugural event in 2017. The talks, which are filmed and uploaded onto various social media, have amassed well over 3 million views (and counting) on YouTube alone.
