We will also be holding smaller TEDxWarwick events known as salons throughout the year.

Who are we looking for?

This year, we’re looking to hear from speakers and performers who have captured the need for people to look at things from a different perspective. We are particularly interested in individuals who have taken an approach to reinvent their discipline and portray a comprehensive knowledge of a topic through their design or through an experience. Performers are given more flexibility in this regard, with more emphasis being placed on innovation.
