TEDxBristol 2017: Dare to Disrupt is all about the people doing things differently in order to make a BIG difference. In a world of constant change, uncertainty and challenge – these are the Positive Disruptors: challenging the status quo, reimagining what is possible, redefining the future. Bold, brave and unflinching in their mission to turn received ‘wisdom’ on it’s head and transform pipe dreams into reality. Be prepared to rip up the rule book and start again. Open your mind, hold onto your seat and enjoy the ride. We’re going to #DareToDisrupt!

You can choose a two-day ticket, or attend for one day of your choice. As well as watching the TEDx talks being recorded live, you’ll get access to bespoke workshops, entertainment, spaces for quiet reflection, and places to meet people and share your ideas and passion projects. This is your ticket to two days of ‘Bristol’s best’: amazing stories, inspirational speakers and a chance to meet and connect with friendly & dynamic people.


This is getting personal. TEDxBristol’s first day is all about the power of individuals, and the infectious positivity their actions and agency can create. From physical bodies that don’t look or work the way they are ‘supposed to’ to new or controversial ways of thinking, dreaming and challenging – be prepared for a journey of self-discovery, personality and purpose.

Speakers include:

Nura Aabe – No More Us And Them – Disrupting Attitudes to Autism

Martyn Ashton – Free-Wheeling – Why You Don’t Need Legs to Ride a Bike

Mena Fombo – No. You Cannot Touch My Hair!

Joshua Luke-Smith – Why Dealing with the Heart of the Matter Begins with Healing Matters of the Heart

William Mager – How Losing A Sense Helped Me Find My Voice
