The Generation Gap
TEDxBrighton was a one-day conference in the Brighton Dome – Corn Exchange on October 26th 2012. The event showcased influential speakers with connections to Brighton and the year’s theme: The Generation Gap.
TEDxBrighton’s inspiring live speakers represented a range of backgrounds, interests, disciplines and perspectives, combined with some classic TEDTalks. All presentations looked at The Generation Gap and helped challenge generation perceptions: where does it lie and does it even exist?
Outside of the conference hall, the Ideas Lab offered the people of Brighton the chance to engage with a variety of interactive ideas, exhibtions and projects.
