TEDxWellingtonSalon to be held in Porirua

MEDIA RELEASE | 14 October 2016

TEDxWellingtonSalon to be held in Porirua

In a first for TEDxWellington, the next community salon will be held in Porirua, at Pātaka Art + Museum on Wednesday 2 November.

It’s an opportunity to host a TEDx salon event in a community that has never had one before, says TEDxWellington license holder, DK.

“This is the first time a TEDxWellingtonSalon has been held outside of Wellington city. We’re excited to share smiles, thoughts, hugs and ideas worth spreading across the Wellington region – starting with Porirua”.

Three previous Wellington TEDx speakers will be attending the Porirua salon to give updates and share their stories: Flight Coffee’s co-founderNick Clark who spoke about ethical bean sourcing, Dan Khan who ran the first Lightning Lab startup incubator in the city, and the team behindGood Bitches Baking who will give an update on how they’re saving the world with cake.
This is the second TEDxWellingtonSalon of 2016, following the sold-out Wellington salon in July. The event is sponsored by Porirua City Council,and is open to residents throughout the Wellington region.

TEDx salons are smaller, more intimate, community events, with more opportunities for conversation and interaction between the audience and speakers.

Following TED rules, only 100 tickets will be available, and the Porirua salon is expected to sell out – continuing the trend of previous TEDxWellington events and salons, all of which have sold out.

Tickets are free and will be available at 7pm on Wednesday 19 October via Eventbrite. Subscribe to the email newsletter on the TEDxWellington website for ticket announcements.

The 2017 TEDxWellington event will be held on Saturday 27 May at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and will be the largest TEDx event ever held in the capital.

Fans can follow TEDxWellington on Twitter, Facebook or sign up for emails on the website for news about tickets and other updates.

These reforms amount to the biggest shake-up of the health system since the neo-liberal reforms of the early 1990s, which have now been completely reversed. Good.
