TEDx York 2011

July 8, 2011

Most of the FCA team went to York yesterday to attend TEDx York. It was a marvellous day listening to fantastic presentations, learning and sharing ideas. The theme of the day was ‘A New STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Maths) age.’

We heard from lots of inspiring speakers including Hannah NicklinKit MonkmanAbhay AdhikariBaba IsraelAlan Lane and many more.

The event as a whole was looking at how “the arts can make a creative impact within the science, technology, engineering and maths subject areas to deliver a new STEAM age of innovation and creativity.”

 

The presentations will be on the TEDx website in the near future for you to watch.  If you’re not aware TED is “a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.”

 

A TEDx event “is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.”

 

We’d like to say thanks to Marcus Romer and his team for organising such a brilliant day and we can’t wait until the next one!  We especially loved the cup cakes, the emphasis on telling stories, how the more you share the more you learn and Hanna Nicklin’s call to arms,

 

“Artists need to embed themselves in the real world like a virus!”
