In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self- organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

What is TEDxBrickLane?

Visit our page on TED.com

TEDxBrickLane is a non-profit event that will be made up of a series of eight talks, all under the theme of ‘Redefining the DJ’. The aim of TEDx Brick Lane is to readdress the common conceptions of the ‘Disc Jockey’ - including where this term originated, how it has changed and developed in recent decades, why the DJ plays an increasingly more prominent role in society and the stamp that DJs have made on popular culture in general. Helping us explore these ideas is a collaboration of people with an expert knowledge and passion for music, made up not only of DJs themselves, but also music producers and academics, instrument designers and music entrepreneurs.
