From thought-provoking presentations led by trailblazers, entrepreneurs and leaders in their fields, to entertaining performances from hip-hop artists, violinists, DJs and more, we’ve curated a very special theatre program for attendees at this year’s TEDxSydney.
In addition, we’ve also been hard at work creating a TEDxSydney Hub experience – the area you’ll be able to explore during the break sessions – like no other. The various tribes at play promise to unite you with other attendees, gain a greater understanding of the plight of our planet and re-connect you with your inner being.
Enjoy a moment or two of peace
We’re offering activities including sand raking, stone piling and guided meditation sessions, all of which are designed to help you take some time out from your fast-paced lifestyle, reach a moment of calmness and reconnect with your inner Zen.
Celebrate, connect, dance, and delight
Celebrate life, diversity, and the power of connecting face-to-face by dancing with someone you’ve never met before. Have some fun and show off your best dance moves at our musical gathering, which aims to bring together people from various backgrounds to celebrate the simple things in life.
Let your creativity flow to find your signature scent
We’ve created a tribe where you’ll be able to select several scents that represent small yet important parts of your life and combine them to create the scent that best reflects your individuality. Dr. Sarah MacNeil will also be sharing neural hacks, where guests will learn how to improve their memory-retention, energy, and concentration.
Change starts with you, so come see what you can do
You will have the chance to view the work of Dean Saffron, one of Australia’s most influential photographers, as he showcases compelling and at times confrontational visuals of famine, poverty and environmental destruction, and the long-lasting effects of war. Plus, you’ll find helpful tips and tricks that you can draw on to dispose of waste more sustainably.
One for the long-time fans
We’ve created a dedicated area for the game-changers and curious minds who attend TEDxSydney every year. In partnership with Berkelouw Books you’ll be able to purchase and read creative titles, engage with an interactive display to create your own photo that defines your signature color, and check out a second-hand bookshelf that instills old books with a new life.
Get your thinking caps on: a live game show concept is coming to TEDxSydney!
INVNT, the official production partner of TEDxSydney is creating a think tank where a selection of TEDxSydney speakers, as well as frontrunners across a range of sectors will join forces with the leaders in live brand storytelling™ to solve some of the largest issues affecting the world today. Much like a live game show, they’ll be working against the clock to collaboratively devise actionable solutions to create change. Attendees will also be invited to join in on the conversation and share their thoughts with the session host, who will relay them to the team, plus those not in the room will be able to contribute via social media.
So whether it’s a moment of relaxation you seek, you’re curious to uncover your signature scent, want to release some energy on the dance floor, or are eager to get involved in active discussions about safeguarding our planet for the future, there’s sure to be something for everyone at the Hub this year.
