Really excited to be part of this Tedx City2.0 – a global conversation today.
I’ve been busy getting inspired by watching Ted & Tedx talks covering closely related & inspirational topics… check ’em out:
- Natalie Jeremijenko, The Art of the Eco-mind Shift
- Julian Tait, Open Data Manchester
- Dave Eggers, My wish, once upon a school
- Jesse Dubois, The Urban Farming Revolution
Thank you so much to everyone who helped me prepare for my talk @wellcometrust. In particular, Emily Philippou, who arranged a practice and Trust staff who gave insights and feedback. I have been practising the talk with a clever technique taught to me by Emily – running it through really really fast, then really really s – l – o – w and hopefully today I’ll find a balance between the two.
Am a bit nervous – but really looking forward to it!
Final thank you to the inspirational Farida Vis and Imran Ali who gave me this speaking opportunity, i hope i give everyone involved in the Everyday Growing Cultures story a great outing to inspire others.
Everyday Growing Cultures was funded by EPSRC Communities & Culture Network+ & support from a range of other partners, Grow Sheffield, Open Data Manchester and The Kindling Trust. Plus continued support from The Wellcome Trust & the University of Manchester through my Engagement Fellowship.
