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.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPeckham, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPeckham event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
