Ideas Festival, TEDxAuckland Returns Revamped for 2016

Ideas Festival, TEDxAuckland Returns Revamped for 2016

#TEDxAkl |May 5th & 6th | 1,100 Attendees | 30+ Talks & Musical Acts | After Parties | #flipside

For the first time Auckland will host a multi-day TEDx event on May 5th and 6th at Shed 10 on Queens Wharf. 30 local and international speakers will share their ideas and solutions for the world in 2016.

The theme for this year's conference is ‘flipside’.

• The perspective you get from seeing an old problem in a new way.
• Turning hierarchies on their head and putting ideas ahead of ideology.
• Sidestepping power structures, gender, race and geography.
• Stepping outside your workplace, your country and even your hemisphere to connect with a community of speakers, delegates and partners united by a healthy disrespect for business as usual.

TEDxAuckland Licensee and Producer, Elliott Blade says this year’s event comes after seven TEDxAuckland events and the team wants to take TEDxAuckland to the next level of experience and engagement: “Think of this year's TEDxAuckland as an ideas festival, celebrating new ideas, local producers and our city of Auckland.

“We would like to thank Event Partners Spark and ATEED and the Panuku Development Auckland. Without them we couldn’t have organised this multi-day TEDx event. Shed 10 allows the large innovative TEDxAuckland community and partners to create a unique, memorable fixture on Auckland’s Calendar. Our mission at TEDxAuckland is to become one of Asia Pacific’s leading platforms for great ideas, creativity and actionable innovation.”

This year TEDxAuckland is set in a more intimate venue and ticket numbers are strictly limited. An application process will be introduced to ensure the audience is as diverse as the talks. People are encouraged to join the TEDxAuckland mailing list on tedxauckland.com to receive early bird announcements and event news.

Follow TEDxAuckland on Facebook.com/TEDxAuckland and Twitter.com/TEDxAuckland for events updates and community news.

TEDxAuckland wishes to thank its partners Spark, ATEED and Panuku Development Auckland for their help in making this year’s event come to life.
