2012 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.

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, Ideas Worth Spreading. The program is designed to give communities, organisations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated by independent, enthusiastic individuals, operating under a license from TED, you can find out more about the 2012 team here.
