TEDxBath promising to leave a lasting impact on the city with its largest event so far

August 12, 2022

TEDxBath has announced the line-up for its biggest ever event, with up to 1,600 attendees and 12-plus speakers ranging in age from 12 to 82 focused on changing perspectives through mind-opening talks.

Organisers of the event on 15 October in The Forum said the aim is to leave a lasting impact on the city by changing the audience’s perspectives on social, environmental and technological matters. 

Called Kaleidoscope, it will cover contemporary topics such as global food security, zero carbon design, sports psychology, overcoming mental trauma, and dance and happiness, with the diverse speaker line-up including 12-year-old ‘Boy in the Tent’ Max Woosey, Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams, and LGBTQ+ activist and Eastern Orthodox theologian Nik Jovčić-Sas.

It will also feature performances from talented local people and include the TEDxBath Innovation Lab – a place for the audience to discover innovations from sponsors, mingle with past speakers and continue discussions about the talks they have just witnessed.

Kaleidoscope’s main business sponsors include Bath Business Improvement District (BID), architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, accountants RSM and software developer Rocketmakers. Other firms sponsoring the event are strategic workplace design and build company Interaction and Grant Associates, the international landscape architecture practice.

TEDxBath curation lead Geoff Rich said: “We’re so thrilled to be bringing another amazing line-up of TEDx speakers and acts to the largest venue in our home city. 

“This year’s speakers range from 12 to 82 years old and all will be sharing diverse and powerful ideas and stories. We are very excited to offer them our stage and we can’t wait to introduce them to our live audience.”

TEDxBath lead organiser Rhodora Baguilat added: “We are building TEDxBath as a fully inclusive community.

“We are looking forward to welcoming people from all backgrounds, ages, genders, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, and people with visible and invisible disabilities.

“We are passionate and proud to reflect diversity in our audiences, our city, and on our stage.”
