TEDxParramatta returns in 2018.

Every day there are millions of ideas in circulation.

Ideas change how we think or interact with the world, others disrupt how we move, connect or do everyday activities and most importantly change lives for the better.

Do you know an idea worth sharing?

 

Nominate

Nominations are NOW OPEN for TEDXParramatta 2018.

Let’s do tomorrow, together!

Society is undergoing a period of unprecedented change across all industries. Ideas hold the power to innovate; change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world. Home to over two million people of diverse backgrounds, Western Sydney is a multi-centred hub for innovation – in technology, art, science, education and business. It is time to give these ideas a platform to connect with local, national and global conversations.

What are we looking for?

  • Individuals who live, work or play across Western Sydney.
    You could be a scientist, a teacher, an urban planner, an artist or cultural worker, perhaps you are a policy shaper, an everyday hero – you could be anybody! We are looking for a diverse range of speakers from across several disciplines.
  • Talks focused on the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world loosely fitting around the theme of ‘let’s do tomorrow, together!’

Nominate yourself or someone you know today!

NOMINATIONS CLOSE 5PM, Friday 1st JUNE, 2018.
