On February 27th 2013, LSx will be presenting an evening simulcast of the third day of TED2013: The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered.
Streaming live from Long Beach to Leeds, the simulcast will feature sessions 4 and 5, with thirteen speakers from the TED2013 programme’s Disrupt! and Dream! segments…
Session 4: Disrupt! 4:30 – 6:15 PM
- Alastair Parvin, Designer
- Danny Hillis, Computer Theorist
- BLACK, Yo-yo Champion
- Lesley Perkes, Public Art Instigator
- Liu Borlin, Artist
- Amanda Palmer, Musician & blogger
- Larry Lessig, Legal activist
Session 5: Dream! 7:00 – 8:45 PM
- Rich + Tone Talauega, Creative directors & choreographers
- Elon Musk, Serial Entrepreneur
- Mary Lou Jepsen, Screen Engineer
- Taylor Wilson, Nuclear Scientist
- Ji-Hae Park, Violinist
- Stewart Brand, Environmentalist & futurist
Though we have access to Sessions 6 and 7 (Create! and Sustain!), our venue closes at 9pm, which means we’ll miss out on the remaining thirteen speakers from TED’s Wednesday programme… this also means we don’t have to stay up into the early hours!
Do join us at Leeds Met’s Rose Bowl, in room RB538 from 4:30pm to 8:45pm – we have space for around 40-60 attendees. Feel free to bring along snacks, tablets, laptops and other devices to tinker and work while watching the talks. We won’t be able to provide refreshments, but we’ll have a 45 minute break to grab a bite from the Refectory or Millennium Square.
