Well you’ve heard of TED talks, right? Talks and videos from across the world by extraordinary speakers who are sharing ideas with the global community. On 21st November 2018 TEDxYouth@Bargate was the first TEDxYouth event to be hosted in the Southampton area! It was a half day non-for profit event aiming to inspire and share ideas bringing students from across the local communities in Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight, together to share ideas.
Many schools and colleges from across the region came together to hear 10 exciting speakers sharing thought provoking ideas on topics such as creativity, the environment, boxing and skills. Speakers included people from the local community, musicians, astronomers plus a maths teacher at Barton Peveril and a student from Cantell School!
At the event a we trialled a new and innovative way of capturing students feedback via a live evaluative illustrator who was sketching all of the key points of the talks (see image below). During the breaks we got students and staff to join in by using our big graffiti wall!
