TEDxAberdeen has announced that their big ideas event is back for 2022. Speakers will gather on Saturday 12th November at Aberdeen Arts Centre. This year’s talks will be centred around the theme ‘Movement’.

The goal of TEDxAberdeen is to “inspire and ignite conversation through a lineup of captivating speakers, spark deep conversation, and create meaningful connections through the sharing of ideas.”

Despite a covid effected launch for 2021, the long-overdue event had arrived at a perfect time for Aberdeen. The TEDxAberdeen conference presented ten speakers, videos and Q&As for a day of connection and big ideas in the Aberdeen Arts Centre under the banner ‘New ways of seeing old things.’

Many who attended last year’s event found it inspiring. It challenged our individual languages around mental health, our life experiences and their impact on others, our jobs, careers, our land, and our neighbours. Its message was a reminder that each of us can make a difference, whether it is in the lives of those around us, or even in our own little world.

Applications for speakers are now open, with organisers asking to speak on the theme of Movement. And so the team at TEDxAberdeen has suggested talks on physically moving, change, progress, an action or strategic shift. But most importantly, what does the word mean to you. Does it “spark an idea worth sharing”?

You can apply to be a speaker on the TEDxAberdeen website, and also register your interest in attending this year’s event.

About POST

Kevin Mitchell and Chris Sansbury founded POST. This was from a desire to cut through the noise to share the great things that happen in Aberdeen. They focus on community, culture and the interesting people of the city. The local artists, businesses and charities; photographers, musicians and entertainers. These are the people that make a positive impact on our city every day. So they use video, audio, writing and social media to amplify the voices in our community. And to ultimately give a platform to Aberdeen folk to engage and tell their own stories.

Recent work includes coverage of Spectra 2022, interviews with We Are Here Scotland founder Ica Headlam; Paralympic gold medalist, Neil Fachie; Aberdeen rapper Chef and his push for success; an article by film director Mark Stirton about the state of high-rise buildings in the city; coverage of Nuart Aberdeen 2022 and TEDx Aberdeen, as well as coverage of British Art Show 9.
