Performance | Adjei Sun | TEDxYouth@Brum

Adjei Sun is a 21 year old Birmingham based artist. Creating has always been a form of therapy for Adjei, since he was young.

“This is what I always hope my art to do. To make others feel less alone. To inspire others to share their truth.”

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. The theme of this years TEDxYouth@Brum 2021 conference is INSERT FUTURE HERE. I’m Adjei Sun. I’m 21 and a Birmingham based artist. As well as writing poetry, I write my own songs, create films, curate events for different causes I’m passionate about and I act. Creating has always been a form of therapy for me, since I was young, a way of dealing with things. When I started sharing my work in the last 5 years I realised that my art wasn’t only helping me but helping others too. This is what I always hope my art to do. To make others feel less alone. To inspire others to share their truth. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
