TEDxBradford 2019: Radically Social

Bradford has long been a lab for social innovation – from the formation of the Independent Labour Party and Titus Salt’s worker’s village in the 1800s, to William Forster’s work on the first national education legislation, the first schools to offer free meals to children and the first UNESCO City Of Film. With waves of Irish, German, South Asian and Eastern European immigration, the city has continued to be a place where a diversity of minds experiment with progressive ideas, to tackle social issues.

Join us for a day of stories from those developing the ideas, projects and communities that are tackling the systemic social and environmental issues of today.


Our schedule for the day includes talks, TED screenings, performances and many opportunities to network and meet the speakers over lunch and coffee.
