DO YOU have a radical idea worth spreading?
Can you summarise it in an 18-minute speech? The organisers of an intriguing new event called TEDx Noosa want to hear from you. The global TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) concept has been embraced by local creative agent Brian Keayes, and the X in the event title signifies that it is independently organised.
Mr Keayes co-founded The Various Artists Creative Agency, Just Us Galleries and Analogue/Digital Creative Conference, and now runs æ creative.
He is part of a curating team looking for a wide range of speakers who have "ideas worth spreading" at the event, to be held on April 12, next year.
"Whether it be an idea for change in the community, change in business, change as invention, innovation or your personal growth story...a story that inspires action," Mr Keayes said.
"If you believe your idea can be a catalyst for change, we want to hear from you.
"This event is being built from the ground up to inspire and activate new thinking, impacting the Sunshine Coast community as individuals and as a whole."
TEDx is a program of local events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event.
