TEDx comes to Docklands

28 Apr 2015

Docklands is joining the TEDx revolution, with the first event Setting Sail launching at the Library at the Dock this month.

TEDx is an independent, locally organised event that brings people together to share a TED-like experience.

TEDx Docklands is being organised by licensee and curator Tracey Habron and local volunteers.

“We want to bring people together to spark conversation with new people, expand minds and challenge thinking through listening to these talks,” Ms Habron said.

“Who knows how far one idea can travel and the change it can create.”

Confirmed speakers for TEDx Docklands are:

  • Pinky McKay, author of Parenting by Heart;
  • Wei-Li Wong, diversity program manager at MCIE;
  • Zara Swindells-Grose, director of Humour Australia;
  • Mariam Issa, human rights advocate;
  • Dr Melissa Weinburg, principal research fellow of Australian Unity wellbeing Index;
  • Rich Hungerford, survival and bushcraft instructor; and
  • Jeff Bollow, author of WritingFAST: how to write anything at lightning speed.

TEDx Docklands Setting Sail will also feature performances from The Shuffle Show and Nithya Nagarajan.

The first TEDx Docklands event will be held at the Library at the Dock on May 3 and runs from 12 – 5pm.
