As the young child struggling to fall asleep knows, stories as important. They have the power to inspire, make us laugh and tell us something true. TED is known for its events and talks from some of the world’s most reputable speakers. In one of the most memorable TED talks, one of my my favourite Nigerian authors Chimamanda Adichie  spoke on the danger of a single story. She eloquently explains how the perspective and insight a story provides is woefully underrated.

On Friday the 21st of September, TED comes to Ealing! This event is all about story. You can hear from speaker Seema Anand about what story means to us, be inspired by word and graphic artist Inua Ellams and many more!
