Young Speakers Prepare for TEDxYouth Summer Event

PREPARATIONS for TEDxYouth, the community spin-off from internationally renowned TED Talk conventions, are well underway for this summer’s big event on Sunday, 15th July.

Passmores Academy will host what promises to be an insightful and thought provoking day with young speakers aged 11-24 presenting on the theme of ‘making connections’.

The high profile event will see the welcome return of some of the performers who appeared at last year’s TEDxYouth, including Will Tennison whose open and honest talk on mental health was particularly compelling.

In the lead up to the event, the youngsters are taking advantage of weekly workshops organised by Passmores staff. They will have the chance to hone their performance skills by working with professional artists, performers, and theatre directors.

Passmores teacher and organising team member, Anna Szpakowska said: ‘The first workshop session encouraged the speakers to expand on their original ideas and experiment with new ones. This was very successful and they were all really surprised at what could be achieved. The group have completely affirmed my belief in working with young people. I came away on such a high; they are remarkable’.

Tickets to the event cost £5 and will be on sale from Thursday, 31st May. These are available through the TEDxYouth@Harlow Facebook page:
