We are happy to announce that our CEO Stephen Robertson will be speaking at the 4th TEDxCourtauldInstitute conference set out to unravel the theme of Connections.

Under Connections, The Courtauld Institute of Art will function as a point of intersection, a place that brings ideas and people together and creates a greater sense of understanding and belonging between them. Through this theme we aim to bring together speakers from various fields giving a diverse range of talks. We aspire to provide these thinkers and innovators with a platform to share their ideas in the spirit of TED.

It is a one-day conference of live speakers, performances and pre-recorded TED talks presented by The Courtauld Institute of Art on Sunday 12th March, 11.00am-18.30pm. Joining the threads laid out in previous events, this year we aim to bond with the communities, organisations and individuals that surround us, hear their stories, and create a greater sense of understanding and belonging between the varied groups of people we share our spaces with. Taking the Courtauld Institute of Art as a point of intersection, we strive to bind its fibres closer together, expand its network, and ask ourselves: where might the ties we establish today lead us tomorrow?
