As a follow up to this own TEDxNorwichED talk “Why we should make mountains out of molehills” Calum performs his own performance poet, about Autism.
This poem the titles and phrases from the 9 TED Talks featured on plus his own talk. Callum is a 25 year old autistic adult living in Spalding, Lincolnshire.
He is extremely passionate about autistic and otherwise disabled people. His own journey has been very difficult but he has had poetry as my saviour. He is now able to think outside of myself and give back to the autistic and neurotypical community.
He gives back by sharing my life through my performance poetry as much of my content has often reflected my authentic experience as an undiagnosed therefore unrecognised and severely unhappy individual.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
