Seven exceptional live speeches on topics such as renewable energies, nature and science, psychology, sexuality, healthy living and social matters are due to take place at TEDxClonakilty at the Clonakilty Hotel on Saturday, October 25, 2014. The evening will be accompanied by art and music performances from local artists and musicians as well as screenings from pre-recorded TED Talks.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a programme of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x equals independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx programme, but individual TEDx events are self-organised (subject to certain rules and regulations).

The event in Clonakilty will be open to an audience of 100 selected people. All talks will be video recorded and made available online on the TED.com website and therefore potentially available to millions.

Speakers of the event are Dr. Paul Deane on ‘Climate Change and Us’; Brian McSwiney on the ‘Geometry of Nature’; Jessica Hatchett on ‘Why Old Habits Die Hard’; Sarah Leather on ‘Simplicity is the new Black (for Women)’; Beth Wallace on ‘Sexuality: Bliss is your Birthright’; Ronan Mcloughlin on ‘Learning how to Learn’; and Justin Grounds on ‘The Human Orchestra Project’.

TEDxClonakilty is organised and hosted by Lisa Brinkmann, resident of Clonakilty since 2008. All speakers, artists and performers of the event live in Clonakilty. Services and service providers are local businesses from the Clonakilty area. TEDxClonakilty aims to keep a low carbon footprint and to be an eco friendly and sustainable event. TEDxClonakilty is a non-profit event and all proceeds and donations are merely used to cover the costs.
