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.
Our story goes global on Friday. This is about the power of the collective – the spirit of collaboration and the mastery of mass-organisation. Our speakers will argue that some of the world’s biggest and most urgent challenges can only be tackled by collective action. While global politics seems to focus on the loud personalities of a few – these talks expose the not-so-quiet achievements of communities and collaborative projects. From technical innovation to grass-roots movements – we’re disrupting at scale.
