TEDxCanberra returns to the Canberra Theatre with our flagship annual event on Saturday 16 September. This full day program will include outstanding speakers, dazzling performances, professional catering and the opportunity to explore and share ideas through talks and experiences. PLEASE NOTE: TICKET SALES HAVE CLOSED
This year’s event will include Auslan interpreters, live captioning and hearing loop. We also honour Companion Cards.
We associate momentum with movement. In the physical world, momentum is the quantity of motion of a moving body. Metaphorically, we speak of gathering momentum when we describe someone or something gaining in strength, speed, relevance and impact.
We chose momentum as our theme for 2017 to reflect the changing nature of Canberra as a growing city and community. We’re taking this opportunity to explore what that growth means for us collectively and individually. Our speakers will share their insights, research, dedication to their work and creativity to allow us to examine the meaning of momentum for ourselves and our community.
Momentum also reflects the TEDxCanberra community, which has been growing steadily since we began in 2009. This year’s flagship event will see us returning to the Canberra Theatre Centre. Thank you for being part of our event, our community, and for sharing our passion for ideas worth spreading.
