TED is a non-profit organisation that spreads innovative and successful ideas globally. It started in the US as a conference catering toward Technology, Education and Design entrepreneurs (TED, geddit?), but has since spread out to cover all ideas, all over the world.
Now TEDx will be making its debut in Parramatta, where it will see visionary Australian speakers come together to explore ideas from Western Sydney that are compelling and pertinent to the region. Recognising Parramatta for the culturally diverse, growing, vibrant community it is, the day unified through the over-arching themes of beginning, becoming and beyond.
The following curators for each category have being announced and will each create an exciting program of speakers relevant to their fields.
Technology: Ben Hoh (Creative Director at Digital Eskimo)
Entertainment: Ross Gibson (Professor of Contemporary Arts at the University of Sydney)
Design: Kon Gouriotis (Director of the Australian Centre for Photography)
