About TEDxPeckham


We live in a world obsessed with appearances and censored narratives.

Through TEDxPeckham’s first ever event, we aim to connect people who have innovative approaches to life and to create an environment that passionately embraces the ever changing people of Peckham.

This year at TEDxPeckham, we are committed to the theme of “Think Again”. In a society where we are constantly bombarded with theories about how we should think and feel, the theme “Think Again” is a declaration to form our own conclusions. “Think Again” is the opportunity for us to reassess and redefine concepts and ideas in ways we have never been given the opportunity to.

About TEDx


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
