Adelaide is set to play host to its own iteration of the popular, independently organised series of TED talks at TEDxAdelaide 2016: Metamorphosis this Thursday at Adelaide Town Hall.
The event "is set to be the biggest and most diverse TEDx event in Adelaide to date," according to the TEDxAdelaide's organisers.
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) expos are an opportunity for the world's leading "thinkers and doers" to gather and to find and share inspiration in their fields and respective lives.
TEDx takes the exclusivity down a notch, removing invite-only restrictions, allowing local communities all over the world to get together and share their ideas in whatever it is they do.
"With a focus on deep transformation, the speakers you will hear, connections you will make and the event experience are sure to inspire you to develop and pursue ideas in the wake of the conference and in the future," the event's organisers said of the upcoming Adelaide event.
Speakers for the 2016 event this Thursday include an ensemble cast of innovators and industry outliers, including filmmakers, teachers, scientists, programmers, authors, researchers and many more.
