has opened applications for speakers for the 2012 event.
TEDx events are “smaller, less slick and more grassroots than TED – but with the same mind-blowing ideas and presenters” according to the event’s creative catalyst Stephen Collins.
TEDx Canberra sold out in 2010 and 2011, necessitating a move to larger venue than the previous years’ venue National Library of Australia.
Unlike the Sydney TEDx event
, audience members themselves will not be subject to a application process.
