Ideas Search 2021

30 December 2021

Event Cancelled Due to COVID-19 Restrictions

Due to the current COVID-19 situation affecting Greater Sydney and the subsequent health guidelines and restrictions in place, we are unfortunately cancelling our Ideas Search event that we had postponed to 3 August 2021.

While we are disappointed to not be able to deliver this in-person event, we consider the on-going health and safety of our speakers, team, audience and broader community to be of the utmost importance.

We remain hopeful that our Main Event on 17 September 2021, broadcast from the Sydney Opera House, will continue as planned and look forward to seeing our community online to share ideas and conversations on that day.

If you think you have a cracker of an idea for a TEDxSydney talk, sit tight as we will be ready for fresh ideas for 2022 soon!  


We are looking for 2-3 minute talks, on any topic that demonstrates original thinking and that can be conveyed by you alone. No slides, no sales pitches – just incredible ideas!
