Kristin: We’re now well into the lead-up to our independently organised TEDx event, TEDxAdelaide, taking place at the Science Exchange building with our creative partner RiAus on Saturday 6th November. Our first four speakers have been announced and cover a diverse range of ideas and topics including exploration, social innovation, social justice, augmented reality and roller derby communities. Yes! Our list of potential speakers to fill the bill is equally impressive and I can’t wait to release the final program next week.
Attendance is free but by application due to limited numbers. Applications are now open and we have received a large number of applications already. If you’re interested in coming along for the day, see here for further details.
We’ve also been gathering together a great group of volunteers and partners, and meeting new people interested in TED.com from Adelaide through our Facebook site and Twitter. I’m constantly amazed at the interesting things we’re unearthing in Adelaide and the connections between people. Can’t wait!
