Forward-thinking young speakers taking to TEDx stage in Lincoln

[email protected] will return in November with a lineup of 10 talented young speakers and performers.

The non-for-profit TED event is a chance to hear revolutionary and life changing ideas. Lincoln’s youth version involves extraordinary speakers aged between 16 and 26.

It will take place on Friday, November 9 between 5pm and 8pm at the David Chiddick Building, University of Lincoln campus.

Tickets cost £5 and are available online here.

Organisers announced that this year, talks, screenings and performances would have the underlying theme of ‘change.

They said, introducing the topic: “GCSE’s to A Levels, A Levels to university, or the world of work? University to Masters, or to the world of work? School, marriage, house, family or school, family, marriage, house?

“The life of a young adult is full of transition and evolution – a different path for each and every person, but with one underlying theme: change.

“During the formative years of adulthood, the lives of young people are in constant transition, evolving from day to day and from choice to choice. The young people of the 21st Century can be seen to share one thing in common: their lives are in a State of Flux.”

Speakers this year are Louis Harman, Joseph Payne, Madeline Powenall, Owen Lewis, Megan Mortimer, Henry Jollands, Charlotte Greenley and Thomas Dunning as well as performances from two local musicians IKENNA and Lauren Pincher.

[email protected] Curator, Lewis Smith, said: “This year’s theme is really exciting! Young people experience so many transitional journeys. This year we want to give the young people from Lincoln and further afield the opportunity to explore those transitions and how they can change the world.”
