Update from TEDxSydney 

TEDxSydney 2021 – POSTPONED

With the recent confirmation of the NSW Government stay-at-home orders continuing into September, we have made the decision to move TEDxSydney 2021 to a new date … Friday 26 November 2021.

We will continue to do what is POSSIBLE …

Ours is no ordinary production. Each year, TEDxSydney relies on a huge cohort of crew and volunteers to produce our Main Event. Being online may shift our audience to the comfort of their homes, but a broadcast event still requires on-site presence of crew, speakers, performers, our team and the venue staff, all co-ordinating a jam-packed day of high quality talks, films and performances. There are many moving parts.

In 2020 we hosted our Main Event online from a studio, and that ‘pared back’ event took a production crew of 100. In September we would be limited to a fraction of that number.

We examined all possibilities of utilising technology to deliver a TEDxSydney-quality event as safely as possible in September, but given the level of health restrictions in place, the volume of content and complexities of our production, and the need for our speakers and performers to share not just their ideas but their vulnerabilities, we were not going to be able to deliver our event in the format envisioned.

We have a ripper line-up of speakers and performers waiting in the wings to add to our existing first lineup of six highly-acclaimed and fearless group of speakers and performers that will be sharing their visions of what is POSSIBLE with you. From scientists, activists, poets, filmmakers, technology pioneers, performances, designers – it’s going to be one hell of a show.

Join us on 26 November 2021 as we explore the theme of POSSIBLE. All existing registrations will be automatically transferred to the new date. Contact us for any enquiries.
