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”.

TEDxCanberra 2020: Imagine will take place in September 2020.

Do you want to speak on the TEDxCanberra stage?

We will shortly be curating speakers and performers for our 2020 program of TEDxCanberra events. Each TEDx­Can­ber­ra 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.
