Alan Summers will be giving a TEDx talk with haiku as its subject

TEDxBradfordonAvon is an independently organised event. The aim is to bring together speakers from fields as diverse as engineering and haiku poetry to act as catalysts  for participants to explore creativity in its widest sense. The theme is 'Crafting the Unexpected'.

Speakers and participants come from a wide range of disciplines including engineering, sculpture, contemporary art, advertising, film direction, haiku poetry, screenplay writing, music and education.  

TED stands for: 
Technology, Entertainment, Design. 

TED itself, is an annual event where some of the world's leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about.  Speakers have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono. 

All TED talks are uploaded onto the Internet. This is a key factor in spreading and sharing ideas. Please visit
