TEDxBath teams up with Bath’s Higher Education Institutions
Here at TEDxBath, we’re excited to announce a working partnership with Bath Spa University, University of Bath and Bath College for our upcoming event: Inter-Connected 2021.
Thanks to this partnership, we will be able to host two in-person watch parties on consecutive evenings at Bath Spa University’s Locksbrook campus; on 18th & 19th November. In order to comply with Covid regulations, the watch parties will be for select attendees only and will feature streamed pre-recorded talks from speakers - with support from Suited & Booted and InfiLED - live talks from select speakers, and a live Q&A. It will be an opportunity for the diverse audience to directly engage with the speakers and sponsors.
All three institutions have committed to working together to support TEDxBath before, during and after Inter-Connected, providing crucial resources that enable our independently organised and not-for-profit TED event to promote ‘ideas worth sharing’.
The students will be using the event as a way to get real world work experience in the events industry and be inspired by the innovative talks and speakers. Select students will be invited to join the curated in-person audience, while sponsorship support from the collaborative institutions will provide students with free access to virtual tickets.
Andy Salmon, Pro Vice-Chancellor External of Bath Spa University said, “We are delighted to support TEDxBath and to help develop exciting new ways for our staff and students to contribute to the development of our home city as an inspiring place to live and learn together. Our Locksbrook campus feels like the ideal venue to host this year’s event, given the theme and the venue’s innovative design and collaborative space.”
TEDxBath Curation Lead Geoff Rich said, “We are thrilled to be working together with the higher education institutions in Bath and we very much look forward to welcoming the participation of their students, staff, ideas and energy as part of this event and our growing community.”
TEDxBath Inter-Connected 2021 will be streamed in multiple languages, including: English, Mandarin, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and British Sign.
