How TEDx­Can­ber­ra works

TEDx­Can­ber­ra is an inde­pend­ently organ­ised, non-profit, volun­teer-run event. Our agenda is to make great ideas access­ible and spark con­ver­sa­tion.

Who owns TEDx­Can­ber­ra?

Nobody “owns” TEDx­Can­ber­ra in the sense you might be think­ing about. TEDx­Can­ber­ra is a licensed event that is a part of the glob­al TEDx pro­gram.

If any own­er­ship exists, it’s with the volun­teer crew who run it.

Our licensee is Steph­en Collins.

How does TEDx­Can­ber­ra make money?

We don’t. We are 100 per­cent non-profit and 100 per­cent staffed by unpaid volun­teers.

TEDx­Can­ber­ra brings in money through con­fer­ence regis­tra­tion fees and part­ner­ships and we spend it on run­ning our con­fer­ences and oth­er events, video edit­ing, web devel­op­ment and host­ing (ideas are free, but band­width is expens­ive…).

Every­one who buys a pass to attend a TEDx­Can­ber­ra con­fer­ence is help­ing share the ideas on our stage free with the world.

And of course, we’re also sup­por­ted by the hun­dreds of volun­teers and people like you who attend our events and share a TEDx­Can­ber­ra Talk with someone else (thank you!).
