WHAT: Half-day TEDxCanberra Conference
WHEN: Wed Apr 17
WHERE: National Library of Australia
TEDx events bring together the world's leading thinkers and change-makers to share their insights into ideas and solutions that matter. Last September, TEDxCanberra brought together over 600 participants with a keen interest in sharing innovative ideas. The next TEDxCanberra full-day event will be held later in 2013. But for those who just can't wait, the half-day midweek TEDxCanberra Salon provides an opportunity to connect and explore ideas about preparing and informing society. TEDxCanberra Salon 2013 speakers include noted futurist Mark Pesce; GreenMag Group's Marcus Dawe; Dr Will Grant of the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science, and many more. TEDxCanberra Salon runs for four hours, covering topics such as climate change, technology and philosophy. It’s an invaluable opportunity to engage with some of Australia’s brightest minds from Canberra and surrounds in a more intimate setting than TEDxCanberra's full-day experience. 1pm-5pm. Registration is $35 + bf at: conferences.tedxcanberra.org/tedxcanberrasalon2013/. More info: tedxcanberra.org.
