About

We first began to discuss the notion of a TEDx event for Bradford in Summer 2010. The university and the museum were immediately on board with support for venues, AV and catering, as well as providing advice on the programme of speakers.

Less than a year later we hosted the first TEDxBradford, combining a simulcast with a programme of live speakers. And to celebrate the launch of the National Media Museum’s Life Online gallery, the second TEDxBradford is scheduled for March 2012.
