Event #2: TEDxCBC
TED Talk/ Expo
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 TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks 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.

Join us in our journey to strip bare and break down the barriers that we’ve created around us. Get ready to be inspired by others who, standing before you, alone on stage, with only their ideas and inspirations to guide them, present their world to you, stripped bare, pure, NAKED.

Event #16: TEDxWarwick 2014 – Inside Out
THE COMPLETE SPEAKER LINE-UP HAS NOW BEEN ANNOUNCED.
The theme for this year’s TEDxWarwick conference: Inside Out.
In a world where globalisation is bringing about an increasing trend of localisation and individuation, seemingly paradoxical headlines are often daily features. It is in such a world that we see pertinent the need to understand the underlying issues behind these headlines, from the inside and out. Doing otherwise and leaving stones unturned is the equivalent of leaving the closing chapters of an Agatha Christie novel unread: there would be an unshakable sense of incompleteness, knowing that you could have.
Those who methodologically attempt at uncovering the whole story; those determined individuals with an insatiable will-to-knowledge, are those who become pioneers of extraordinary ideas, because extraordinary ideas come, unmistakably, after insight. They’re making those on the inside see out, and those on the outside see in.
It’s those people we’re making it our mission to highlight, to give their voices a stage. We want to share with you the experimenters, the explorers and the visionaries who have shaken up their art, their science and their disciplines in both small and big ways. Some bring something new to the table; others make us rediscover things we thought we fully understood.
Who are these people?
– Gershon Dublon
Gershon Dublon is a doctoral student and research assistant in the Responsive Environments Group at the MIT Media Lab, where he works on new tools for exploring and understanding dense sensor network data. Recently he has been thinking about ways sensor networks might become extensions of our nervous systems— networks of remote, distributed sensing prosthetics. In the past, he has worked on people-sensing as a post-graduate researcher at the Embedded Networks and Applications Lab at Yale University, and has helped develop algorithms for feature extraction and analysis of butterfly wing patterns.
– Matej Peljhan
Matej Peljhan is a photographer. A number of newspapers and blogs around the world noticed him after his Le Petit Prince series, where he photographed a boy with muscular dystrophy doing various things that he’ll never be able to do in real life (e.g. play basketball, climb stairs etc). Matej lost his right arm and eye when he was injured by some explosive devices scattered around in his village post WWII. He strives to bring photography as close as possible to people with special needs. He also set up a Institute of Photographic Therapy where he offers workshops and educates others in the field of photographic therapy.

– George Butler
George Butler is an artist and illustrator specialising in travel and current affairs. His drawings, done in situ are in pen, ink and watercolour. In August 2012 George walked from Turkey across the border into Syria, where as an unofficial guest of the rebel Free Syrian Army he spent 4 days drawing the civil war damaged, small and empty town of Azaz. 6 months later he made a similar trip back to Syria to record the stories amongst the refugees and the field hospitals. These drawings were reproduced by the Times, the Guardian, Evening Standard, Der Spiegel, ARD television Germany, NPR (USA) and reported on the BBC World News, BBC World Service, CNN twice, Al Arabiya and Monocle Radio. However, his sense of adventure did not start here – since leaving Kingston university, drawing has taken George around the world, depicting the oil fields in Azerbaijan, soldiers in Afghanistan, reconstructive plastic surgery, G20 riots, the New York Fire Department and Asian Elephants.
– Jim Bowes
Jim Bowes is the founder of GreenGraffiti®. After working in the communications industry for 25 years, he became interested in the issues surrounding sustainable development.

– Alison Benjamin
Alison Benjamin along with her partner have traveled across Europe and North America investigating the plight of the honeybee, which is disappearing across the globe at an alarming rate. From commercial almond farmers in California to local honey cultivators in the English countryside, all suffer from lonely hives that are filled with baby bees where all the adults have disappeared. Alison is the Society Editor of the Guardian and co-founder of Urban Bees which is a social enterprise that is bringing bees to cities. She is an activist for the safety of bees and her mission is to promote sustainable and responsible urban beekeeping to a new generation of urban beekeepers through education and training.
Urban Bees was set up a few years ago by Alison Benjamin and her partner Brian McCallum who started beekeeping in west London in 2006 with one hive at the bottom of the garden. They wanted to share their passion for their new hobby with other urban dwellers. She is the co-author of Keeping Bees and Making Honey, A World without Bees and Bees in the City; an urban beekeepers’ handbook.
– Martin Birchall
Professor Martin Birchall co-led the pioneering research team which carried out the first transplant of a human windpipe reconstructed using stem cells. Starting out as a head and neck cancer surgeon, Martin spent many years working on conventional tissue transplantation. In 2008, Martin used tissue engineering techniques he and his team had been developing in pigs to partially reconstruct a new trachea (windpipe) for a patient using her own stem cells.
Again, in 2010, this team replaced the entire trachea in an 11 year old boy at Great Ormond Street. Although it is still early, both are doing well. Professor Birchall now runs a research programme looking at ways of applying stem cells and tissue engineering to the laryngeal disorders. Clinically, he specialises in voice and swallowing disorders, as one of four internationally renowned laryngologists at the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital/Ear Institute. He was Morgan Stanley/Daily Telegraph Briton of the Year in 2008 (Science and Technology) and elected Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2010.

– Nic Marks
Nic Marks is the founder of the Centre for Well-Being, a think tank at the New Economics Foundation (NEF). Investigating and promoting a balance between sustainable development and quality of life, Marks devised the “Happy Planet Index,” a global index of human well-being and environmental impact. His finding, that people in the wealthiest countries, who consume an extremely large amount of the world’s resources, do not come out on top in terms of well-being, raised questions as to the purpose of economic growth. He is a recognised economics expert in the field of well-being research and undertakes innovative research in the use of well-being indicators in public policy environments.
– Jim Reeves
Jim Reeves is a London based designer and along with Martin Riddiford he has spent four years developing a light that would provide a viable alternative to kerosene and sun-powered lamps for developing nations. GravityLight™ works by harnessing the power of weight and gravity, it is easy to run, low-energy, battery free and also, cheaper than solar lighting. GravityLight’s creators are looking to test and begin mass-production on this innovative design, in the hopes of brightening peoples’ lives when it gets dark.
GravityLight™ is an important development because 60% of female, adult, non-smokers, are getting lung cancer from inhaling the fumes of commonly-used kerosene lamps. Designed specially for people in Africa and India with no access to mains electricity, the lamp generates enough energy for half an hour of light when holding weight for just a few seconds.
THePETEBOX is a solo performer, musician, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose pioneering live show has ignited audiences across the world. Breaking out as an award-winning beatboxer he soon redefined the genre through the use of his loop pedal, guitar and his otherworldly, multi-phonic voicebox. Witnessing THePETEBOX’s live show is like experiencing a magic trick, reveal on reveal, loop on loop, one man building up tracks that are as sonically massive and diverse as any full band setup or DJ set. Make no mistake though, this is no novelty act, this is a singular artist untouched by trends or fads, someone who is genuinely and fiercely independent who has tapped into an art form of true expression that connects directly with the hearts of a rapidly growing fan base. He possesses a primal talent and has transformed it into music that captures the imagination of people from all walks of life and from every corner of the world.
THePETEBOX’s versatility is reflected in the stunning variety of settings he has performed in, from clubnights world-wide to multiple Grand Prix, the major stages at festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds, V-Fest, Bestival UK – Lake of Stars, Malawi – Woodstock, Poland to name but a few, private parties for the stars and sold out headline tours around the UK and Europe.
– Kristina Cranfield
Kristina Cranfeld, born in Uzbekistan (formerly USSR) is a London based artist and filmmaker. She took her Bachelors degree at Goldsmiths and went on to obtain a Masters degree at the Royal College of Art. Her work is a combination of speculative narratives, performances and social experiments, which investigate and challenge societal and political systems and their impact on human lives.
Largely concerned with immigration and human identity, Kristina’s work is presented through films, installations, photographs and live performances. She continuously experiments with these mediums, finding unconventional techniques to tell and capture compelling visions. Through her work she explores how the creative disciplines can influence complex political issues and the future of policymaking, believing that there is space to engage and contribute to socio-economic matters affecting migrants. Her works were exhibited internationally and published by WeMakeMoneyNotArt and Blueprint, amongst other publications, and continue to be selected for screenings at a number of international films festivals, with her most recent film being added to the library collections of LADA.
– Nahji Chu
Nga Chu, known to everyone as Nahji or MissChu and to those who get in her way, as ‘The Queen of Rice Paper Rolls’ is the founder and creative director of misschu. The enterprise is the fusion of an entire life experience. Her early experiences at school, when she was struggling to learn a new language and culture, have become a central focus of the interior and service design of misschu venues. The venues are tuckshops, the menus resemble school food ordering forms, the language is simple and playful, as heard in schoolyard banter. Nahji is the first to bring this comprehensive school nostalgia to a high-design hospitality experience. The outcome are friendly, chatty, fun and fast spaces.
Born in Luang Prahbang, Laos, in 1970, Nahji and her family escaped the Pathet Laos Regime in 1975. They sustained themselves on the meagre living conditions afforded by the various Thai refugee camps they inhabited over a four year period before the Chu family’s number came up and the Australian government made them one of the first Vietnamese/Laotian refugees to settle in Australia.
– Zena Agha
At 17 Zena was the youngest member of Operation Black Vote’s MP Shadowing Scheme, campaigning for a boycott of Israeli Settlement foodstuffs in Westminster as well as Deputy Member of Youth Parliament. Part of her extensive community work includes running poetry workshops, and she was shortlisted for the London Mayor’s Young Person Peace Prize. Zena founded and coordinates Warwick University’s biggest spoken word collective ‘Shoot from the Lip’ – running poetry slam nights and was awarded funding from the Lord Rootes Memorial Fund. Media credits include BBC Arabic and the BBC World Service and she created and produced Operation Black Vote’s Power of Poetry project.
– Nicola Benedetti
Nicola Benedetti is one of the most sought after violinists of her generation. Her ability to captivate audiences with her innate musicianship and dynamic presence, coupled with her wide appeal as a high profile advocate for classical music, has made her one of the most influential classical artists of today.
Winner of Best Female Artist at the 2012 Classical BRIT Awards, Nicola records exclusively for Decca (Universal Music). Her most recent recording, The Silver Violin, is particularly renowned for its success in reaching No. 30 in the UK pop charts simultaneously to topping the classical charts for months.
Nicola enthralls and communicates to audiences with dynamic and energy-filled performances. And whilst she is a highly sought performer on the world platform, Nicola is also fiercely dedicated to music education. Through her work with such organisations as Sistema Scotland, she has helped to demonstrate the power that music can have in transforming the lives of young people.

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then, its scope has broadened to include science, business, the arts, and the global issues facing our world. The annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives — in 18 minutes. Attendees have called it “the ultimate brain spa” and “a four-day journey into the future.” The diverse audience — CEOs, scientists, creatives, and philanthropists — is almost as extraor- dinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Nandan Nilekani, Jane Goodall, Vilayanur Ramachan- dran, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono.
TED was first held in Monterey, California, in 1984. In 2001, Chris Anderson’s Sapling Foundation acquired TED from its founder, Richard Saul Wurman. In recent years, TED has expanded to include an international conference, TEDGlobal; media initiatives, including TEDTalks andTED.com; and the TED Prize. TEDIndia will be held in Mysore, India, November 4-7, 2009. TED2010, “What the World Needs Now,” will be held February 9-13, 2010, in Long Beach, California, with a simulcast event in Palm Springs, California.

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.

Arte, tecnologia, design, cultura. TEDxRoma porterà questa città sul palco del Teatro Olimpico, in totale e insolita assenza di politica e religione, per dimostrare che a Roma ci sono nuovi percorsi, molto più fuori dagli schemi di quanto si pensi.
Per questa città è giunto il momento di confrontarsi con il meglio del pensiero Out of the Box di tutto il mondo: potrete incontrarlo al TEDxRoma, attraverso le parole di ospiti riconosciuti a livello nazionale e internazionale.

Il 22 febbraio 2014, una nuova Roma si rivelerà al Teatro Olimpico. Per farne parte, basta esserci.
