Welcome to TEDxCanberra – our community’s ideas festival

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a global movement dedicated to sharing great ideas that change the world for the better. TEDxCanberra is a program of independently organised, nonprofit and volunteer-run TED events serving Australia’s national capital.

Every year, we showcase the best ideas from Canberra and around Australia to the world, and act as a platform for up-and-coming changemakers and artists. Since our conception in 2010, we have inspired thousands of people with ‘ideas worth spreading’.

Logo for TEDxCanberraWomen 2021: What Now?

At TEDxCanberraWomen 2021, we will hear from Canberrans who are helping to move the conversation about the power of girls and women to be creators and change-makers in a meaningful way. We will learn the “what now?” in fields including design, technology, science and culture — and together, we’ll envision a future we can build together.

We will hear from speakers and performers who are imagining new possibilities and exploring new ideas for how we might live and work better together in the years to come.

Register now.

Do you want to speak on the TEDxCanberra stage?

We are in the process of curating speakers and performers for our 2021 program of TEDxCanberra events. Each event features a carefully curated selection of the region’s most innovative and inspiring ideas.

If you know someone with an idea that belongs on the TEDxCanberra stage, or if you have an idea yourself, we want to hear from you. Outline who you are nominating, how we can get in touch with them, and give an overview of the idea. Remember, the key criterion is that you have an idea worth spreading.
