Plan B, Musician, actor, writer-director Plan B, or Ben Drew, is emerging as one of Britain's most imaginative and dexterous artistic talents. A singer, musician, writer, actor and director he first made his name as a hip-hop artist with the release of his critically-acclaimed debut album in 2006. Two years later he appeared in his first film, Adulthood. Later this year sees the release of iLL Manors, his first film as director-writer, charting the lives of a group of young people living in East London. Meanwhile, in the autumn, he will appear alongside Ray Winstone in the remake of the 70s TV classic The Sweeney. In an Observer interview last year Plan B said that much of his film and music work is inspired by injustice and much of it reflects on his life and upbringing as a youth in east London. About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
