TEDxBrum 2014 - DIY
The city is changing. Step by step. Little by little.
In 2014, TEDxBrum’s theme was DIY: “a method of building, modifying or repairing something without the aid of experts or professionals.”
From humble beginnings in 2012, volunteers continued to grow the TEDxBrum platform themselves, working together to make DIY at Library of Birmingham the biggest event yet.
TEDxBrum has always focused on collaboration, shining a light on amazing citizens who come together to communicate ideas worth sharing. DIY was a day full of thought-provoking stories, innovations, and ideas from truly remarkable people who demonstrate what can be achieved when you decide to step forward and Do It Yourself.
The event brought together over 350 people who are planting seeds of change; an inspiring reminder that we can all be part of positive change because change starts with a single person - a single action - a single flash of inspiration - a single ‘do’.
We all know Birmingham isn’t perfect, but it’s our home. A home we are proud of. Every day we see people standing up making their voice heard and doing things differently, not accepting the status quo. Everywhere citizens are rethinking the way they live their lives, and TEDxBrum 2014 allowed us to reimagine a better Birmingham and work to build it up ourselves, step by step.
Don’t settle. Start by doing it yourself. Let’s do this together.
