July 5th from 10am - 10pm
York Theatre Royal
This will be a day full of inspiring speakers, delivering 'TED' style talks, as well as provocations, debates, discussions and hands on opportunities to discover how the emergent technologies are shaping and changing the things we now do. Get to understand more clearly how these ideas are shifting the ways we connect and communicate, and how we can harness and creatively develop their use for our work, and our world.
There will be space to discuss, and share ideas and to be part of this extraordinarily unique event - We will provide the best locally sourced food for you from Henshallwood's Delicatessen and Manjit's kitchen, we promise to provide the most amazing coffee that is roasted right here in this beautiful city of York, as well as Betty's tea and one or two surprises during the day...
We promise you stimulating conversations, encounters and new connections, as well as delivering premiere performances and music especially for you right here in the heart of the city at the Theatre Royal.
We have also managed to keep the costs down and to keep the ticket price the same as the 2010 level, thanks to support from Arts Council England, Science City York and the City of York Council.
Join us... for a whole day event / two meals / all drinks / wine reception / speakers / workshops / for the early bird rate of £150.00 +VAT (last year the TEDx York tickets were gone in less than an hour so set your diaries...)
Speakers will finish at 6pm followed by a drinks reception to 8pm.
