A day of inspiring talks, connection and action
“Critical thinking without hope is cynicism, but hope without critical thinking is naïveté.” — Maria Popova
TEDxExeter is back for a 6th year. We’re bringing another exceptional group of speakers and performers to Exeter to share their work, vision and hope with us. We’ll gather over 900 people on the day to share inspiration and explore ways of turning hope into action and making a positive difference in our lives, our communities and ultimately our world.
Live at the Exeter Northcott Theatre
Simultaneous Livestream at Exeter University’s Alumni Auditorium
Both audiences will join together in the breaks to meet each other, our speakers, sponsors and groups making a difference locally. Lunch and refreshments are included in the ticket price.
“Optimists think it will all be fine without our involvement; pessimists take the opposite position; both excuse themselves from acting. Hope is an embrace of the unknown and the unknowable, an alternative to the certainty of both optimists and pessimists. It’s the belief that what we do matters even though how and when it may matter, who and what it may impact, are not things you can know beforehand.” — Rebecca Solnit
Come and join us – dreamers, thinkers, makers and doers – and be part of something special.
