Late last week the TED team announced the theme of this year’s TEDxAdelaide!
Inspired by Franz Kafka’s novel The Metamorphosis, the theme is Metamorphosis.
The event, happening on the October 20, will be focusing around and encouraging change and transformation.
It seems that you can change your life after a fifteen-minute TEDTalk clip on YouTube, imagine how inspired you'll be seeing them in the flesh?
The first speaker announced for October is Dr Fiona Kerr, a systems and neural complexity specialist. Dr Kerr travels around the world speaking on areas like neurogenesis. AKA the growth and development of your nervous tissue. Very relevant to metamorphosis, and very cool.
As the months roll on, more speakers who have experience in the process of change and development will be announced for the special day.
Announcing the theme for this year on TEDxAdelaide’s blog, Engagement and Experience Director, Matthew Wright-Simon, wrote that although change can be daunting, the power behind TEDx is that ‘great talks bring our fears and hopes into the open and propel us towards better things.’
After a cracking few years in Adelaide, the independently run event is building up momentum, gaining speed, and blossoming into our very own baby TED.
To get you excited for October, here’s one of the best talks from TEDxAdelaide 2015.
We’re looking forward to some more life-changing talks and some serious enlightenment.
When: 20th of October
Where: Adelaide Town Hall
