Caroline-8Dr Caroline Horton, Reader in Psychology and PhD Programme Leader at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU), will be delivering a talk designed to help people become fearless as part of this year’s TEDx Brayford Pool Event.

Dr Horton’s talk, titled “Sleep well, Dream will, Be fearless (almost)”, will discuss her research within DrEAMSLab along with highlighting the ways in which sleep processes our emotions. This will be Dr Horton’s second TEDx talk and she was delighted to be returning:

“It’s great to be part of the TEDx family. I am a passionate campaigner for open science and knowledge exchange, and am particularly happy to contribute to this in Lincoln. TED offers the opportunity for big ideas to reach thousands of people quickly and easily, which makes academic ideas far more accessible than the average journal article or traditional output.”

This year’s event, the second TEDx Brayford Pool event in Lincoln, will be held on Saturday 30 June with 17 presenters all examining the event theme of “Fearless”. In addition to Dr Horton speakers include BGU Education Studies & Applied Drama Student Joshua Cudmore who will be discussing how ‘The Power of Theatre’ can help combat fear.

Also joining the lineup is award-winning campaigner, actor and presenter Adam Pearson, who has fronted the critically-acclaimed documentaries Horizon: My Amazing Twin, Adam Pearson: Freak Show and The Ugly Face of Disability Hate Crime.

The full presentation titles for all the speakers have officially been launched and tickets are now available from the TedX event box office. All the presentations across the event promise to widen your horizons and change your life so make sure you don’t miss out.

You can find more information on the range of courses and opportunities on offer at BGU on our website or by contacting our Enquiries Team.
