Team

Peckham’s community spirit is unbeatable and is one of the most ethnically diverse districts of an already diverse city. Our aim is to not only showcase Peckham to the world but also bring the world to Peckham.

The multi-faceted TEDxPeckham team are working together to develop the first ever TEDxPeckham event. It is no easy feat but we are really excited about showcasing the community and building relationships with local partners and sponsors who share our vision. Above all, we continue in our aim to both educate and entertain.

Our ambition for TEDxPeckham is to always deliver celebration, challenge and curiosity.
