Event description

Description

TEDxAdelaide 2017: Zoom Out is set to be the biggest and most diverse TEDx event in Adelaide to date. With a focus on viewing the world through a different lens, and harnessing the power of our connections on a larger scale, we want to know what opportunities lie ahead for our city. The speakers you will hear, connections you will make, and the overall event experience are sure to inspire you to develop and pursue ideas at the conference and in the future.

In previous years, tickets have sold incredibly fast and most events have sold out. This is also your chance to support TEDxAdelaide as an organisation, as we prepare for a truly spectacular event. TEDxAdelaide is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers, and the support of our community and partners is what allows TEDxAdelaide to continue sharing 'ideas worth spreading'.

Doors open for registrations at 1.30pm and we'll have plenty to see and do, including an exciting new area showcasing 'Ideas in Action'.

Talks will start at 3.00pm and there'll be a one hour break to explore and dine before another set of talks at approximately 6.00pm.

If you would like to purchase group tickets, please contact us at info@tedxadelaide.com

JOSEPH CAMPBELL @almasano
Joseph Campbell migrated from the United States to Adelaide, a simple process that involved a bit of paperwork. The reality turned out to be a bit more complicated. Ten years as an expat from Chile to Malawi to Adelaide has him now wondering about our place in the world as advocates.

SHALOM ALMOND shalomalmond.com
Shalom is an award-winning documentary filmmaker whose works include films about girls living on the streets in Vietnam, Kayan women in Thailand who wear brass neck-rings, and her own pregnancy. Her latest project looks at unconditional love in the most unlikely location.

DOMINIC MCAFEE @dominicmcafee6
Dominic is a scientist at Adelaide University working on mitigating climate change whilst improving the resilience of marine ecosystems and local economies through a very inventive collaboration.

ANDREW BARKER www.grow-free.org
Andrew became concerned by the struggles of many families to eat wholesome food and founded Grow Free, a community network that doesn’t just want food to be nutritious, but free.

BRAD CHILLCOTT @bradchilcott
Brad is the founder of Welcome to Australia, a pastor and progressive thinker. His ‘work’ has seen him engaging with many different cultures both locally and around the world and has seen the rise of activism where it can provide invaluable support to struggling communities.

EMMA HACK @EmmaHackArtist
Emma is a celebrated artist working in the unique medium of body paint installation and photography. With successful solo shows across the globe, Emma is mentoring young Adelaide artists with the annual Emma Hack Art Prize, now in its fifth year.

ANNIE HARVEY @magpie_coaching
Annie helps adults and adolescents embrace change and cut through the noise to find quietness, laughter and focus within an extraordinarily short period of time.

JACINTA KOOLMATRIE @JKoolmatrie
Jacinta is an Adnyamathanha and Ngarrindjeri person who grew up in Port Augusta. Last year she won the Flinders University’s Ken Wanganeen medal as the most outstanding Indigenous student for her studies in archaeology, and her dream is to work with her Adnyamathanha community to incorporate their perspectives of yura malka (rock art) into her research.

FLAVIA TATA NARDINI @flavia_space
Space engineer Flavia Tata Nardini began her career at the European Space Agency. Nanosatellites have been a big part of her work for a number of years. In 2015, she co-founded Fleet to solve the issue facing businesses globally over the next decade: how to connect the more than 75 billion connected devices expected to come online over the next decade, simply and cheaply.

ALAN NOBLE @scruzin
Alan is the engineering director at Google Australia and New Zealand where he has overseen the growth to over 600 engineers. As an entrepreneur, Alan has founded a number of tech ventures and most recently is the founder of the Australian Ocean Lab. His TEDxAdelaide talk will share his idea on moonshots and citizen science in a very Zoomed Out way.

LOUKA PARRY @loukaparry
Since 2009, Louka Parry has taught at one of South Australia's most remote communities, been promoted to Principal at the age of 27, was named South Australian Inspirational Public Secondary Teacher of the Year, completed two masters degrees, studied at Harvard, and visited every continent. He also learned to speak four new languages, including Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara and plans to learn many more.

Sarah shares their time and expertise with growing community networks they have founded. They share openly about their personal experiences relating to sexuality, mental health and disability.

TARIK SAMMOUR @tarik_sammour
Surgeon Tarik Sammour chose to settle in Adelaide because he saw its potential as a leader in healthcare delivery and innovation. With an ageing population and spiralling healthcare costs, he has some ideas to solve problems that are relevant to us all.

HEATHER SMITH @changing_weathe
Energy is a hot topic at the moment, and Heather has spent a considerable amount of time on how we use this vital resource. She recently completed a Churchill Fellowship on the subject and now has ideas on what our energy future could become.

EVENT FAQs

  • What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
    The 2017 event is at the Adelaide Town Hall on King William Street, and there is minimal street parking in this area. We recommend making arrangements to take public transport to and from the event; if you're planning to drive we suggest car-pooling with other TEDxAdelaide fans and parking in Topham Mall carpark.
  • Does the ticket price include food and refreshments?
    One can not think well if one has not dined well; therefore delicious food, served during the main break is included with your TEDx Adelaide 2017 ticket.
  • Is there a student or concession ticket?
    This year's event only has one ticket price of $89.96 (+ booking fee). We have strongly considered discounted tickets for students and concession card holders, and we continue to look into ways to facilitate this. We believe our ticket price is exceptional value for money, providing our audience with world leading ideas, along with a food selection to match the ideas heard from the stage. We also have one of the lowest-priced TEDx ticket in the country!This is only possible through the dedication of the TEDxAdelaide volunteer team and our generous partners; this is a non-profit organisation and with ticket sales we manage to cover costs. We are looking to partner with organisations who may choose to sponsor tickets for students/concessions/economically disadvantaged groups and individuals, so please contact info@tedxadelaide.com if you would like to discuss this.
  • I'd like to speak at the event! Can I still do that?
    Our program for 2017 is now finalised, but if you would like to be notified of speaker applications for 2018 and other opportunities, please sign up to the mailing list.
  • When do the talks start?
    Registrations are open from 1:30pm, and the programme begins from 3pm. We recommend getting to the venue as early as possible to orientate yourself with the venue and to participate in some of the space activation. Seating is unassigned unless you have specific access requirements.
  • Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
    There is no age limit, we encourage all people of all ages to attend! Please bear in mind that there may be some materials presented that could be challenging to young minds, so please consider adult supervision.
  • How do I indicate I have dietary requirements or access needs?
    You will be asked for your dietary requirements or access needs when booking your ticket.
