TEDxPeckham aims to connect people who have innovative approaches to life and to create a platform to embrace and acknowledge the ever-changing people of Peckham. Home doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone. For some, it’s a sense of belonging in your own body and for others, it’s a far away country that you no longer live in. People find homes in different ways and in different places. Home is always changing. This year, TEDxPeckham discuss the ideas of home, what it means to you, where do you find it and how do you find your way back again.
