Event description

Description

We’re living in a new age of information, learning and communication. Never before have we had so much of the world at our fingertips. Never before have we had so much information available. And never before have we had so much involvement in the content we consume.

But for all our truth and all our knowledge, we haven’t yet extinguished the concept of fate from our narrative.

Our reality is a double-edged sword. There’s so much truth out there for us to consume. This world gives us the opportunity to see things that have been in darkness and hear stories which otherwise would’ve been silenced. New concepts, views, and discoveries shape our actions. But perhaps we’re somewhat naïve – do we really think we’re in control of our lives? And how can we make a difference in the world?

But the other edge of the blade is just as keen: whose stories are we seeing? What defines truth? Confirmation bias is a daily occurrence and our worth is measured in clicks, likes and hashtags. Failure is no longer behind closed doors. Are we pursuing perfection because our lives are on display? How do we maintain a genuine connection to ourselves and others in a digital world?

Speakers include:

- Professor Katrina McFerran, Head of Music Therapy at the University of Melbourne

- Matt Finnis, CEO of St Kilda Football Club

- Sonya Stattman, Success Strategist and women's business advocate

- Claire Gorrie, PhD Candiate/Researcher focussing on resistant-bacteria ("superbugs")

More speaker announcements will be made in the coming weeks - stay tuned by following us on Facebook or signing up to our newsletter at www.tedxstkilda.com.

Come along and enjoy a night of thinking, learning, discussion and conversation with other like-minded individuals. This event is not to be missed, so get your ticket today!
