The fifth year of TEDxEastEnd will bring together world-changing ideas from around the globe and local stories told by, and embedded in, the East End community.

The event on Saturday, January 30, features inspiring and thought-provoking talks, performances and exhibitions that will focus on these three words – ideas worth spreading.

The day-long session, now in its fifth year, continues to explore the theme “society beyond borders”, which will have four key aspects; global mobility of people and ideas that benefit society, how the local and the global are inextricably linked, how sharing knowledge and ideas across borders drives progress and how ideas empower people towards positive social impact.
