Event Details

Running from 9:30am to 4:30pm, TEDx Lace Market will see a 100-strong audience of local people become a family for the day. As well as listening to talks from the ten guest speakers, they’ll watch family-themed videos, take part in discussions, games and activities, and share ideas and opinions. Audience involvement is key, and attendees will be encouraged to watch the organisers’ ‘Preptastic’ video diaries in the run-up to the event, so they already feel part of the TEDx community when they arrive on the day.

Our MC for the day is Jamie Riddell

Throughout 2011 and in to 2012, we have been following people globally calling for new economic models and political systems. Might it also be that we need to recalibrate the way we live? 

We put the rarely questioned under the microscope; either to challenge or to confirm it. We call it the greater-than-or-equal-to-2 (≥2) question. 

This TEDx will be an exposure to concepts and analysis on the topic of families and human co-existence, as well as an opportunity to be introduced to different living propositions, structures, stories, media, types, and ways with which people get along, get educated, do business, do art, do sports, take decisions, communicate and collaborate together.

The TEDxLaceMarket team is bringing together speakers selected from their local, national and international networks to reflect on the notion of family. For one day you with be part of a family to look at what family means across cultures, organisations and societies.

Wikipedia defines family (from Latin: familia) a group of people affiliated by consanguinity, affinity, or co-residence. In most societies it is the principal institution for the socialization of children. Anthropologists most generally classify family organization as matrilocal (a mother and her children); conjugal (a wife, husband, and children, also called nuclear family); and consanguinal (also called an extended family) in which parents and children co-reside with other members of one parent's family.

There are also concepts of family that break with tradition within particular societies, or those that are transplanted via migration to flourish or else cease within their new societies. As a unit of socialization the family is the object of analysis for sociologists of the family. Genealogy is a field which aims to trace family lineages through history. In science, the term "family" has come to be used as a means to classify groups of objects as being closely and exclusively related. In the study of animals it has been found that many species form groups that have similarities to human "family"—often called "packs." - source Wikipedia
