On Saturday April 26th, the doors of NewportNet, the Northern Beaches first Coworking space will open to the local community to experience live video coverage of TEDxSydney at the Sydney Opera House. Sold out each year since inception, despite the requirements to apply to attend, TEDxSydney has become the leading pipeline for the propagation of Australian ideas, creativity, innovation and culture in Australia and to the rest of the world. TEDxSydney fosters a sense of community and provides a cultural focus and impetus for conversation and debate.
As one of TEDxSydney’s first satellite Event organisers for 2014, NewportNet is welcoming the local community to experience thought provoking ideas, compelling stories and breathtaking musical and stage performances live on two big screens, free of charge. A full day event, TEDxSydney will include talks from Nikon-Walkley, award winning photographer Barat Ali Batoor, New York Times winning author Adam Alter, brain imaging scientist Richard Banati, mathematician Clio Creswell, Punchbowl Boys High School Principal Jihad Dib, ex Nsw State Coroner Mary Jerram, best selling author David Kilcullen, lighting architect Mark Major, entrepreneur and Skateistan founder Oliver Percovich, neuroscientist Cyndi Shannon Weickert, autistic artist Tim Sharp (and mum Judy), environmental campaigner Barry Traill, Neuro-ethicist Nicole Vincent, disability advocate and comedian Stella Young and Mark Zusak, author of the New York Times best selling novel “the Book Thief”.
It’s too early to confirm, but TEDxSydney At The Beach (tatb) may also include some unique experiences drawn from the Northern Beaches community just for our audience.
TEDxSydney At The Beach (or TATB) will run from 8.30am – 5.30pm in four sessions. Entry is free but entry is by ticket only. Tickets are available online at http://tatb.eventbrite.com.au
