With the constant frenzied release of information, breaking news, and public outrage, will truth or subjective information crumble the edifice of institutional power, subvert the status quo and weaken democracy. Or is the real challenge to find out which voices we are to believe, and find leaders, innovators, and visionaries who will bring about the new Renaissance.
‘Truth & Dare’ is the theme for TEDxWandsworth 2017 as we throw the gauntlet to speakers, fans and followers to look at the status quo in their own lives, workplaces, and institutions to ask: Does this ‘Truth’ work? Dare I question my reality, let alone do something about it? Is this reality a truthful, authentic experience? And if not, has society ever succeeded when truth was deemed too powerful.
The theme - ‘Truth & Dare’ - aims to provoke us all to take a closer look at the world around us. At TEDxWandsworth 2017, we will give you access to new, thought-provoking ideas and thinking covering a wide array of topics. We want to overturn stones, shine a spotlight, and reveal hard truths about our world’s issues and problems, and dare us all to get more involved.
In the three years since we launched the first TEDxWandsworth, there has been great upheaval in politics, public discourse, and the echo of the social media chamber is ever deafening. Which is why this year, after extensive research and curation, we have chosen TEDx speakers that are on the cusp of creating new ideas, forging new systems and activating projects that will allow others to greatly benefit, and in turn fine-tune and elevate those local ideas into global ones. They will confront the ‘Truth’, and ‘Dare’ to act, forging a path for others to follow, share and be inspired.
The only question remaining is whether you are ready to join us on Saturday, 25th November for ‘Truth & Dare’?
