VOICES OF CHANGE
On October 25, we gathered at Eaton House to hear stories of identity, empowerment and creative expression from across the continent of Africa. These talks come from a group of people with unique perspectives expressed through a variety of initiatives, from art expression to activism, design to photography, all of which actively explore the identity and cultures of the African continent and the global African diaspora.
The speakers in this salon included artists, photographers, designers, and visionaries who are remaking the world around them. The live talks were complemented with talks from the global TED stage, rounding out an evening filled with fresh insights, creativity and heart.
OUR SPEAKERS & PERFORMERS
WHAT IS A SALON EVENT AND WHY WE LOVE THEM
At a TEDx salon, attendees host a few live speakers, watch TED Talks, and have informal discussions about the talks they witnessed. We love them since due to the smaller audiences and specific themes, salons lead to lively discussions, allowing you to actively participate in the event in a more intimate space, and with more chances to get know and exchange ideas with each other.
