The Next Revolution

TEDxBrum 2012 - The Next Revolution

Birmingham was once the heart of the Industrial Revolution, but what next?

TEDxBrum 2012 was Birmingham’s first ever TEDx event, bringing together the city’s greatest thinkers, leaders and do-ers to explore The Next Revolution. Growing from a few people plotting in a coffee shop, the event resulted in 100 attendees turning up to discover the city’s ‘ideas worth spreading’ together.

Taking place at mac birmingham, the day featured talks, performances and film to ignite a passion for spreading ideas in local communities and beyond. The day sparked deep conversations and connections, bringing together people from different backgrounds from across the city to inspire both thought and action.


TEDxBrum 2012, The mac, Birmingham. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
