TEDxBath speakers to look to the future by making sense of the past

September 20, 2019

Echoes of the past and visions of the future will collide at TEDxBath tomorrow, organisers have promised, through a series of discussions in sectors including engineering, community and science and tech.

Taking the theme of ‘Echoes of the City’, the event returns for a second year by showcasing a range of individual perspectives, stories and knowledge from 10 inspirational speakers. 

Starting at 1pm in The Holburne Museum, TEDxBath aims to inspire change among the community. Each speaker will discuss their own unique perspective on subjects ranging from climate change and the circular economy, to investigative science and innovation.

Speakers include:

  • James Shone, founder of ‘I Can & I Am’
  • Cat Jarman, honorary senior research associate at the University of Bristol and director of the independent research unit Munin Archaeology
  • Frances Fox, sixth form student at King Edwards’ School
  • Lynn Wilson, founder of Circular Economy Wardrobe
  • Jo Dolby, hub leader at Oasis Bath
  • Shawn Sobers, associate professor of lens-based media at University of West England
  • Larkhall, composer and software developer
  • Jayne Rochford-Smith, headteacher of St Andrew’s Church School
  • Harpinder Collacott, executive director of development initiatives

While tickets sold out within a matter of days, TEDxBath organisers want to ensure that the message reaches further than just those watching from the audience or via the publicly available livestream. They have brought in Bath-based creative agency Rocketmakers to develop a special TEDxBath ‘Echoes of the City’ app.

The app will provide a platform to showcase the city’s talent and innovation, while referencing roots in bygone days.
