WATCH TEDxSYDNEY LIVE

Thursday 21 May 2015, 9am - 6.15pm


Ten minutes isn't long to give the talk of your life, but when 17 speakers take to the TEDxSydney stage, we - the 2000-person live audience and thousands worldwide - will be hanging on their every word.

On Thursday 21 May, an extraordinary line up of Australians will take to the Sydney Opera House stage to share their stories and ideas. The great-great grandson of Charles Darwin, brain surgeon Dr Charlie Teo and UFC kickboxer with a name that says it all - Nadine Champion. Along with a death row lawyer, a dictionary editor and a flamboyant trans hairdresser/social worker who travels thousands of kilometres across Central Australia.

As principal partner of TEDxSydney 2015, we encourage and share curiosity at every level and interest area.


Ask the speakers a question with #curiositycoffee

Have you ever stopped to think where the world would be without curiosity? Without those people always asking questions, searching for the answers, and in the process, solving problems?

This year, we’re asking you to feed your curiosity– to ask that question you’ve always had – and we’ll do our best to get it answered.

We’ve teamed up with the 17 TEDxSydney 2015 speakers and the University of Sydney’s army of experts to answer your questions – to sate your curiosity.

You can start sharing your questions right away on Twitter with the hashtags #curiositycoffee #tedxsydney.

It’s just possible that a question might stump the TEDxSydney speakers and university ‘experts’, or you might have a different perspective. So if you see a question you can answer, please chime in!
