TEDxCoventGardenWomen is an independently organised event in London devoted to ideas worth spreading. We exist to spread ideas that change hearts, minds and lives for the better.
Taking our lead from global TED, we co-create an inclusive, accessible space and provide a high-spec, beautiful platform for people to spread ideas, share stories and address issues of gender and identity.
We draw on the experiences of an international network of speakers in order to celebrate the transformative power of women, girls and anyone who shines a light on different realities. We support our speakers and our audience to tell compelling stories of race and gender, business and technology, entertainment and design in order to inspire, provoke, change perspectives and challenge injustice.
TEDxCoventGardenWomen is now accepting speaker and performer applications for 2016.
Do you have an idea worth sharing or a performance in mind for our audience? If so, we want to hear from you.
To apply all you need to do is submit a 2-minute video answering the following questions
What is your idea worth sharing / performance piece?
Why does it matter now?
Who should hear it and why should they listen?
Please submit your video to firstname.lastname@example.org either as an attachment, or a link to a private online video / file transfer. Please include your bio and links to any of your work to support your submission.
Speaker Submission FAQ’s
In 2013 we launched our very first event, Unlabelled – challenging the restrictive words that promote intolerance and keep us from living more fulfilling lives. Bringing together speakers from around the world, we combined art and activism, poetry, passion and business to create an event that included voices such as Laura Bates, Leyla Hussein, and Natasha Walter.
Take a look below to see some of our favourite snaps from our 2013/2015 events, or watch our talks on YouTube.
