TEDx Wolverhampton comes to the Arena Theatre. Applications being accepted now

07/01/2020

Our theme for TEDxWolverhampton 2020 is Ctrl+Alt+Del where we’ll be exploring ‘control’ within society, ‘alternative ways’ of thinking and ideas, approaches and concepts that have been or need deleting to enable us and our communities to grow.

Ctrl+Alt+Del, or the three-finger salute, is the commonly known combination of keys on a PC keyboard, used to re-boot the system.  However, it was never meant for public knowledge. In fact, it came about by mistake and was for computer developers’ fingers only!

Unfortunately, or fortunately, dependent on you point of view, the information was accidently included in IBM’s technical reference manual and released to the public. The rest, as they say, is history!

At TEDxWolverhampton 2020 we’re exploring ideas that challenge, turn long held and accepted norms on their heads, challenge the status quo and reset and reboot our thinking.

So, get ready to give the three-finger salute to your old ways of thinking and open your mind to ideas worth sharing!

Want to be involved? Contact zoe.mason@wlv.ac.uk for a speaker application. Deadline: 10 January 2020.
