TED is a global foundation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then, its scope has become even broader, from science to business to global issues. With its two annual conferences, video website TED.com, initiatives and community projects, TED is now a platform and a global movement focused on meaningful change through the power of ideas. TEDx events are community driven events that inspire innovation, thought leadership and visionary insight.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxNorthernSydneyInstitute, where x=independently organised TED event. At our TEDx 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.
