TEDxMelbourne is your very own Melbourne-based independently-organised TEDx community.

We are run by a team of passionate volunteers that strive to challenge how people think and feel about the world through sharing ideas that encourage curiosity, creativity, courage and connectedness.

From climate issues to politics, technology, globalisation and freedom of speech, each area has allowed us to shine a light on what's current and relevant to you. We look forward to continuing to deliver ideas worth spreading, alongside you — our community.

About TEDx

TEDxMelbourne is an independent organisation created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.”

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMelbourne, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMelbourne 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-organized.
