Sydney Opera House partners TEDx

TEDxSydneyThe technology, entertainment and design festival spin-off TEDx has partnered with Sydney Opera House for its fourth annual Sydney event.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that provide an experience of TED at a local level.

The event will be held in the Concert Hall before a live audience of over 2,000, simulcast throughout the public areas of the Sydney Opera House and also be streamed live globally. 

Remo Giuffré, TEDxSydney licensee said in a release: “We’re very excited about this new major partnership with the Sydney Opera House. TEDxSydney has had three wonderful years at Carriageworks; but it just felt like it was time to try something new and different there in the Big Room. The growing commitment to ideas (dangerous or otherwise) at the House makes them a like-minded partner for TEDxSydney as we embark on our next phase of development. Sydney Opera House shares our vision to make TEDxSydney the region’s leading platform for great storytelling, creativity and actionable innovation.”

TEDxSydney 2013 will be on Saturday 4 May 2013 at the Sydney Opera House.

  4. The last Sydney tedx this year was mindnumbingly boring, arty farty rubbish

  6. Funny you should say that, Gina.

    I thought it was good – better than the previous year and nearly as good as the first year.

  8. They have a policy. If you ask to speak you’re automatically disqualified. This prevent the infomercial crowd, self-promoters and truly boring from putting the audience to sleep.
