Event description

Description

In the words of Senator J William Fulbright: “The essence of intercultural education is the acquisition of empathy--the ability to see the world as others see it, and to allow for the possibility that others may see something we have failed to see, or may see it more accurately. The simple purpose of the exchange program...is to erode the culturally rooted mistrust that sets nations against one another.”

Fulbright alumni often describe their scholarship period as a deeply transformative experience, during which they adopt a different frame of mind to empathise and interact with their hosts overseas. Our speakers, all Fulbright awardees from diverse fields, will address the theme "Empathy & Transformation". TEDxFulbrightCanberra will thus showcase Fulbrighters as thought leaders.

Reflecting the Fulbright exchange program, TEDxFulbright seeks to facilitate an experience that embodies the continued power of progress through international, cross-cultural, and interdisciplinary connection and community action. TEDxFulbright events have been held since 2012 in several cities including Cambridge (MA), Frankfurt am Main, Dublin, Washington (DC), Santa Monica (CA), Melbourne, Bogotá and now Canberra.
