Event description

Description

TEDxKingstonUponThames is back for 2020 with another full day of talks at the Rose Theatre in Kingston Upon Thames.

Our theme for 2020 is 'Cut Through The Noise'.

12 talks plus performances.

Avant-garde composer John Cage’s renowned 1952 work 4’33”, formed entirely of silence, challenges our assumptions on the differences between sound and noise.

In a distracted, relentless and cluttered world TEDxKingstonUponThames explores how we determine what is noise and what is truth, what is real and meaningful versus the illusory and negative. Without authenticity, can we truthfully participate, empathise and engage with others?

Talks include, a record breaking transatlantic adventure, a commercial pilot discussing human error, a dinner with Vladimir Putin, a student in the room with Google demanding change and a University Challenge star talking about the 'magic of numbers'.

Great storytelling enables us to ‘Cut Through The Noise’, connect with others and bridge differences. TEDx is a global programme of independently organised events based on the world-famous TED Talks model.

Through a day-long event of live talks and performances, TEDxKingstonUponThames – entirely not-for-profit and organised by volunteers – strives to bring our community together with unique stories, opinions and experiences to spark meaningful discussion.

The full line up of talks and performances will be announced in due course.

Speakers and talks are subject to change. Timings are also subject to change however this is a full day event.

Speakers

Fern Lulham - What Online Dating Looks Like When You're Blind

Two things taught Fern about insecurity - being blind and online dating. From denying her disability entirely to learning that she didn't have to fully accept being blind to reveal it to others. Fern challenges the idea that total acceptance of oneself is necessary for others to accept us and explains that self-acceptance is not a moment of enlightenment, but a lifelong rollercoaster ride.
