In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxHobart, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxHobart event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.
TEDxHobart is a volunteer run, non-profit ideas event that is bringing the internationally recognised TED brand to Hobart for an independently organised TEDx event in January 2014.
TEDxHobart will bring together academics, scientists, artists, musicians, changemakers and thinkers in the beautiful city of Hobart, with some of Tasmania and Australia’s most interesting presenters taking the stage to deliver their “ideas worth spreading”.
