TEDx Bedford, Everyday Radicals and Placeshaking

What joins up events on Worthing Pier, street play, the Primitive Methodists, pop up shops, guerilla gardening, The Caravan Gallery and yarn bombing?

They all get threaded together in this talk about the idea of Placeshaking – informal, loose, DIY urbanism that helps to define what makes places special.

It’s the first time I’ve spoken at a TEDx event, and I’m a bit sceptical about them – I prefer action to talking. But I was invited by Bedford’s Kayte Judge, who have a lot of time and respect for. Seems it turned out alright in the end.
